PIAZZA O.C.D., Adeodata Cardinal (1884-1952)




Italian friar of the Discalced Carmelite Order, (also served as its Prior General); cardinal-patriarch of Venice and member of the Roman Curia. Secretary of the Sacred Consistorial Congregation.

Lot of three items:  (1) Typewritten Letter Signed, one page, 1945; (2) Autograph Note Signed on imprinted biglietto, dated 1945; (3) envelope in the handwriting of Cardinal Piazza bearing the patriarchal seal on the reverse.  Correspondence concerns an appeal on behalf of the Patriarch to members of the military, in this case Colonel Andrea Marella, Venice.  It appears that the Colonel responded by donating 10,000 Lira.  The TLS appears to have pencilled notations in the hand of Colonel Marella to Cardinal Piazza.  All in very good condition.
