I am unable to translate the entire text on the back of these photos. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for all of you who have helped me ID some old photos. You are wonderful people!

On the first image I read:
"Lo zio Ciccio di Bartolo con affetto" standing for "Uncle Ciccio di Bartolo with love".
On the second image it seems: " Giulietta (?), Gaetano e la carissima cugina Marietta (?)" and a name of a town (in Sicily) with date: Girgenti Aprile 1921. So, it should be: Giulietta, Gaetano and the dearest cousin Marietta. Girgenti April 1921"

I'd say "alla carissima cugina" - "to the dearest cousin"
Giuseppe "Pippo" Moccaldi
