N.B. Translation excerpt: "In quest of the painting , a work of real painter, and easily recognizable a Tuscan landscape that by way of execution from the palette and attributable to factors of Giovanni Fattori. The work is not signed, but the examination of the UV, it appears a trace unreadable signature that was originally attached to the stat framework, perhaps in pencil or other matter...comparative examination nothing contrasts with the assignment given to me of Giovanni Fattori. La presente e fatta a Millano 11/3/1975."
