Valentino Memorial - The Valentino Family Speaks Appreciatively

It was an historic day on August 23, 2009 when Alberto Valentino's great granddaughter Jeanine Villalobos addressed the Valentino Memorial as the keynote speaker. For the first time in decades; since Alberto Valentino; a family member addressed the Valentino Memorial.   Jeanine Villalobos, on behalf of the family, thanked the Valentino Memorial for continuing to honor her great grand uncle over the years and upholding the "colorful" tradition of the annual event itself. She then proceeded to quote private family letters recently translated that told the inside story of Alberto's grief and his journey escorting his brothers remains on the cross country train trip from NYC to California for burial.

This year marks the 90th anniversary of Rudolph Valentino's passing and on August 23, 2016 the 89th Valentino Memorial Service will be held.
