About Fausto Gardini

I was born in Italy on the Rubicon River (yeah right, that’s where Julius Caesar on January 10, 49 BC said ‘Alea Jacta Est’ [The die is cast] for posterity. I wasn’t there, so I missed him.

  • I grew up in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg,
  • lived in Paris, France,
  • moved to Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
  • Marcia, my wife, and I lived on St. Simons, Island, Georgia, USA.
  • We now live in Jacksonville, Florida, USA.

I speak English, French, German, Italian and .. Lëtzebuergesch, the official language of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

Marcia, and I have been adopted by Olivia and Bailey of the feline species, who allow us to share their living quarters, as long as we feed them and clean up after them.

Life could be worse!

      INFORMATION: A travel document, No. 42, for Anne de Seyfferitz Labarr [Name spelled de Seyfferditz] was issued on July 7, 1919, by the Consulate General of the United States of America at Paris, France.
      She signed the document twice; on her picture she signed as Maria von Seyfferitz Labarr.
