FAIANI, Antonio. 17.8.1859 — 19??. Italian School-Teacher interested in Indology. Director of R. Liceo-Ginnasio Massimo d’Azeglio in Turin. Perhaps lived into an advanced age. But sources are contradictory. One Antonio Faiani of Verona has life years 1859–1933. However, Pullé in OC 10, 1894, 2:10 ascribes the Meghadūta to the Director of Liceo of Ferrara and the Corriere Abruzzese (http://www.abruzzoinmostra.it/corriere/ultima-dimora/PAG0829–.HTM), referring to the Corriere della Sera, announces the death of this AF in Rovigo 8.1.1896 adding that before Ferrara he had been teacher of Italian in Abruzzo and Aquila.
