Andre Steffanelli and Giovanni Venturi

Andre Steffanelli and Giovanni Venturi: Andre is the brother of Silva and the son of John Pietro.   Karolyn, Merrell and I first met Andre in Rome in 1987—the moment I saw him step off of the train, I knew exactly who he was. Andre, as his Sister, holds the Doctorate in Law from the University of Bologna and has a Corporate Law Office in Bologna.  His spouse, Giovanni was the gracious host and tour leader of Venturi Art, one of the most prestigious foundries in the world.  Founded by her late Father, her Mother, Aunt, and Sister—four women entrepreneurs lead the enterprise that continues to use techniques introduced hundreds of years ago.  Recently one of their major sculptures was brought to the U.N. Building in New York City.    They have two children, Julia and ____________.
