Dear suedaydreamer in Italy records and documents are normally found inthe city,town or village of origin so whenyou say Turin=Torino I shudder! unless you know exactly that this city is his birth place. Please advise.

Try www.findmypast.com for name checks (free ) since it is a paying website and maybe worth while if you come across their names and also www.freeBMD.org/uk andtry google using the name,genealogy and Italy in the title for any research ever done on these two personalities.

Please get back with what results you come up with. =Peter=

The 1881 Census says that he was born in Turin in about 1832, and that he was indeed a Musician by trade.

If you can gain access to Ancestry World Membership (should be avaliable in your local library), there are plenty of Luigi Curti's on record in the database - "Como and Lecco, Lombardia, Italy, Civil Registration Records, 1866-1937 (in Italian)"

He did have a son Luigi, so maybe he followed in his fathers footsteps!
