Thanks for your post, for some reason i can´t see your message until now.
Obviously i feel sad about your comments ... dont you have any other suggest about that ?.
My father is dead since 1986, the only reference about the surname is on a novel from a Colombian writer about some italian painter named Vittorio Vintanelli, but it's a fictional character.
Any other suggest will be appreciated.
(Sorry for my bad english i'am from Mexico City)

Hi Peter

My father was argentine, but he was born from italian imigrants, he said his father was from Lombardy and her mother (Conti surname) from Sicily.
When he was a child, her parents, brothers and sisters died in Argentine because of a plague. Only him and an elder brother survive.
Both of them travel trough many countries until his brother died in New York, leaving him alone as an orphan. Then he received help from a catholic mexican priest who brought him to Mexico, who becames his new homeland.

Best regards
