Trying to decode a family photograph

Post by bmparent »

Hey there Italian language decoders, I need your help! I found this old photo/postcard at my parents house today (See attached)

. I can get a few words (fratello, moglia, mille bacci a tutti!) but there's a lot that I can't get due to the handwriting. I believe it's addressed to a cousin of mine Guerino, and it's signed by an Amadeo and wife Lucia. I don't know who they are but I gather they are brother and sister in law of Guerino. I would love to hear your interpretations of this!
