Son of Eugenio?

In Sicily (Italy) there was a photographer Eugenio Interguglielmi (1850-1911), I could not find if the two were related. At some moment in time the L. Interguglielmi Photography Studio has been located at New 933 Royal St., between Dumaine and St. Philip.

Nice name!

Having studied Italian and married into an Italian family I take a strange pleasure in being able to pronounce that auspicious surname with ease!
