I am sorry but I don't speak Italian. I am the author of the English and German contributions for Franco Merli and just wanted to thank whoever took up the labour to translate the article into Franco's native language so that his countrymen might also learn a little more about him. Thanks again.
I would really love to know whether the contributer who claims to be "sono il nipote di Franco Merli" actually is related to Merli and if therefore the correction of birthplace and current home from Corleone, Sicily to Rome is true. Thanks.
To francosalo from giulianosiena (firstname.lastname@example.org): I met Franco Merli in 1976, when he was in Siena as a soldier. He was born in Roma on oct 31,1956.
