Please tell me what the inscription says in the below image. It is written on the back of an old photo of two girls on a horse. I am especially curious as to what the name is that looks like Mariuccia and its relation to Giovannina. Thanks in advance!

My interpretation is that it is written "with affection to signora Mariuccia" from the daughters (figlie) of Giovannina.

My guess is:
"In segno d'affetto alla signora Mariuccia Iacugia figlia di Giuvannina Russomando"
with no punctuation marks it should mean:
"As a sign of affection to Mrs. Mariuccia Iacugia, daughter of Giuvannina Russomando"
Giuseppe "Pippo" Moccaldi
