Hi as you can see my name is Mario with the Gravina surname and i just wondered how can i find out if I'm in anyway related to this fine looking gentleman.
I'm sorry but I do not read italian yet but I'm trying! please is there an english version of his history.

Kindest regards

Mario Gravina

I'm surprised to find so little information regarding Gravina. As far as I'm aware there isn't even a proper biography of this great man.
