back of old photo -- help!

Postby dvaccaro » 06 Jul 2008, 01:00

this is from the back of an old photo; a portrait of an older gentleman taken in Sicily. the photo is either OF Giacomo Vaccara (as written on the back) or the inscription is written TO Giacomo Vaccara...

can anyone help me with a translation?

I think the last name is Testa. It looks like RO in the first name, but not Rosa.

To me it looks like Dolidio Ddolio which doesn' t make any sense to me but the "lidio" looks certain. The "i "is dotted and the "o" doesn't look like the other "a". It's the capital letter that is really difficult.......maybe da lidio (from Lidio?) Is that a first name?
