Comments for ALBERTO:

Alberto Moravia, born Alberto Pincherle, (November 28, 1907 – September 26, 1990) was one of the leading Italian novelists in the 20th century.

His works explored issues of modern sexuality, alienation, and existentialism. He is best known for his antifascist novel Il Conformista (The Conformist), which was the basis for the 1970 film The Conformist which was directed by Bernardo Bertolucci. Other Moravia novels that became films include Il Disprezzo (known as A Ghost at Noon or Contempt) filmed by Jean-Luc Godard in 1963 as Le Mépris (Contempt), and La Ciociara (Two Women) filmed by Vittorio de Sica in 1961.

One of the world's first set of sextuplets are born in Chicago, Illinois. (There were reported but unverified earlier births of sextuplets being born in U.S. on December 30, 1831, in Italy in 1844 and in Maine in 1847) The Bushnell family delivers six babies, three boys, Alberto, Laberto and Norberto, and three girls, Alice Elizabeth, Alincia, and Lucy. Laberto and Lucy die at birth but we believe the other four babies survived the birth. Alinica reportedly survives to age 85, dying on March 27, 1952 in Warsaw, New York. We've also seen a Guinness Book reference that claimed all six sextuplets survived at least two months.
