On Abba and Buffa, see Tognoli 1971. There are no documents that show Abba and Moreno were schoolmates. 17. See, for example, Faldella 1962, 127, 133. 18. The biographies of Luigi Moreno (Bettazzi 1989, Cerri 1878) make no reference to Celso Cesare Moreno. Research in the bishop’s personal papers (Monsignor Luigi Moreno, Corrispondenza privata, Archivio Storico Diocesano di Ivrea) has not produced evidence of their connection, unsurprising given the ecclesiastical theme of his correspondence. 19. “Lista alfabetica della Comunità di Dogliani, Classe dell’anno 1831,” “Liste di leva,” ASCD; “Celso Moreno,” Fondo Università di Genova, Registri dei Matricolati, Archivio di Stato, Genoa. 20.

Research in this vast archive, which includes lists of officers and troop embarkation and disembarkation records (“Spedizione in Oriente , Indice degli Ufficiali Impiegati,” “Registri degli Sbarchi nel Porto di Balaklava”; “Elenco nominativo degli individui che presero parte al Corpo di Spedizione in Oriente”) did not produce Moreno’s name.

On the use of mercenaries, see Bayley 1977. 29. “Registri dei Matricolati,” Fondo Università di Genova, Archivio di Stato di Genova. This file also contains a practice exercise Moreno did for the final exam. 30. On November 18, 2006, Riccardo Moreni, the only resident of Dogliani with that surname, told Durante this story, which Moreni heard from his father, who claimed to have heard it from his grandfather.
