I wish to make a point though on why American or English reports, even from such renowned sources as Reuters (yet I may name almost any major newspaper in the UK or the USA), constantly mis-spell Italian Family names. The main person in your report is the historian who revealed the hidden head. She is a well-known professor, the Author of a number of important historical essays, and her name is Chiara Frugoni (final “i”, not “e”). I am an Italian who daily reads both Italian and English or American papers, and I can testify that this kind of mistake is quite rare in our papers, when foreign characters are concerned.

We are to operate under this assumption because that is what the people who found it think it to be and that would make the work somehow subversive?
