Marco Polo Netflix Series

Italian born and raised newcomer Lorenzo Richelmy  will be starring in the much anticipated 10-episode @Netflix‘s drama #MarcoPolo @MarcoPoloMP airing Dec 12 at 12:01 a.m. PT.  The series was created by John Fusco and was filmed in Italy, China and Malaysia.

While this will be his first North American role, he is no stranger to the screen in his native Europe.  Lorenzo was born in La Spezia, Liguria, Italy on 24 January 1990 and moved to Rome when he was 4.  The son of theater actors, he  began acting on stage when he was 8.  He later landed a role in the theatrical production of Zio Mario and then on to film in 2002 when he was cast in Il Pranzo della Domenica.

In 2002 he played the part of Cesare in the Italian TV mini series I Liceali and in 2010 was cast in the film Fat Cat [which landed him a best actor award at the Brussels International Film Festival as well as three other festivals in California].  Il Terzo Tempo (The Third Half),  was his latest film which debuted in 2014 at the Venice Film Festival.

Reggio Calabria

Finally, after waiting what seems to be an eternity, the Italian State Archives have added several records from Reggio Calabria towns to their database.

This is very exciting news as the Italian State Civil records contain images for years up to and including 1940 for some towns which allow researchers to link more recent generations to their databases.

Alternatively, you can also check out the Genealogie van Rijswijk amazing site for more extractions on several of these towns which also include some family sites and church record extractions dating back tot he 1600’s or my personal Website, Calabria Exchange for additional towns not yet listed in the Archives. Many images as well as extractions can be found there.

Good luck and Happy Researching!
