I've been intrigued by this photo of an Italian family for some time. Why did my dad bring this back from Italy at the end of WW2 and keep it safe, with all his other WW2 stuff? Did he stay with this family, or maybe they ran a restaurant that dad used? This photo is printed with a simple 'post card' outline on the back, but this was not unusual at the time. And in any case, if this was a simple 'hand out' photograph, why did dad keep it? It is extremely unlikely that this family will ever be identified. However, does the text on the model plane mean anything; i.e. was "Beruno 97" the name of an Italian plane, or maybe the name of the family? And its a bit odd that the symbol on the tail was not painted out when the Allies arrived.
