Works on Bld Alexandrina by the Signoriles

The Signoriles were an Italian couple, Mathematics and Physics teachers at the Liceo Beccaria, in Milan, who made an intensive study of Bld Alexandrina. They collaborated with Fr Umberto Pasquale at the time of the Diocesan Informative Process, wich took place in Braga between 1967 and 1973, translating the five thick volumes of Sentiments of the Soul.
Professor Chiaffredo, born 9th October 1913 in Stroppo, in the province of Cuneo, died on 13th October 1999. But his wife, Professor Eugénie Signorile, born 9th September 1914 in Milan, still publishes books on Alexandrina.
Neither of them knew Alexandrina during her lifetime.
