Translation from Italian to English

Postby momsrule » 20 Jan 2010, 03:02

Hi... I was sent some pictures from a relative that she found in a box. A few of them have some writing on the back of them and I was hoping to see if someone could translate for me. I'll try adding as a attachment and also tried to load them into my photobucket.
Thanks in advance (and hopefully the links work !)

Hello there,
Wow, these are difficult to read! I can make out a few bits, so I'll start the ball rolling and maybe someone else will join in. The scans are rather small, which makes the 3rd one too difficult to read.

1st) says "ho scritto una lettera perche" = "I have written a letter because" then a bit later it says "il pensiero" = "the thought", then "fare baci a tutto" = "give kisses to everyone", then "famiglia" = "family" and "Gerardo" at the end.

2nd) says "Vi offro questa foto per" = "I give you this photo for", then a word I can't make out, then "del tuo" = "of your" and then "Giganti Vito" at the end.

3rd) starts "Questa cartolina" = "This postcard" and then it gets a bit too small to make out. Sorry about that.

I hope that's a bit of help.
Best wishes,
Andrew

Questa cartolina è il monumento ai caduto in guerra che sarà inaugurato il 24 maggio che verrà anche sua maestà il Re col suo figlio che sarà una delle più grandi feste che si farà quest'anno a Ceva(?)
Questo si trova davanti una villa ed un teatro questa è una donna che rappresenta l'Italia e tutto in bronzo la statua e l'altro in marmo fino a terra

This postcard shows the war memorial that will be inaugurated on May 24 at the presence of his Majesty the King and his son. It will be one of the biggest feast this year in Ceva(?).
It is in front of a villa and a theater and the woman represents Italy. The statue is made in bronze and the basement in marble
