Forum Announcements / need help with photos of the GARF
« on: January 27, 2017, 05:04:15 AM »
Hi everyone!

I need help. I found this page of the GARF, I believe as I don't speak Russian, referring to an exhibition that took place in 2011. As far as I can see it was about the relationship between Russia and Italy.
An interesting photo taken in Racconigi Castle (Italy) by Han is also shown.

Two questions:
What does it mean?
Ал. 249, сн. 77
is it the number of Album? and of the photo?

Where can I find the e-mail address of the GARF,  in order to ask them if they have other photos taken by Han during that State visit? In Italy I could only find a few photos.


Does anyone have a pdf of the book Secret Letters of the Last Tsar (1938), Being the Confidential Correspondence Between Nicholas II, and His Mother, Dowager Empress Maria Feodorvna?

I can't download it anywhere...I mean for free.

Thank you.

I need especially the pages related to the Tsar's visit to Italy in october 1909.

Russian Noble Families / Need help with Kapnist family
« on: April 03, 2013, 09:55:27 AM »
Hi everyone!

I'm doing researches about the Ladies in waiting of Queen Elena of Italy, and, at moment I am focusing on Countess Maria Bruschi Falgari, born Maffei di Boglio.
The point is that her mother was Countess Dorothea Kapnist (or Capnist) daughter of Count Peter Kapnist.

I know that Countess Dorothea was born in 1839 in Russia (I read it in her grave) and died in 1923 in Italy. So her father must have been born approximately in 1800-1810.
The Kapnist as far as I could see were quite a famous family in Russia.

But I wasn't able to find anything about Count Peter.

Who was his father? and his mother? but the most important thing who did he marry??  Why was he in Turin in mid-19th century? I know this becouse hid daughter Dorothea married Count Maffei di Boglio in 1862.

THANKS in advance for any suggestions!

Does anyone know something about this palace? I had never heard anything of it before. It seems it was built for Alexander II.
