Alberto Moravia ne PINCHERLE #austria-czech

We have recently had some discussion on the SIG re the migration of Jews
between Italy and Bohemia/Moravia [both directions].

I was interested to read today that the Italian novelist and writer, Alberto
Moravia was actually called PINCHERLE. His father was Carlo PINCHERLE -
architect and painter. Has anyone read Alberto's autobiography? There were
quite a few PINCHERLE in Italy [see Google]. In Livorno, I noted the name
PINCARLE.

There are four PINCHERLE buried in Vienna:

Zentralfriedhof Gate 1 7-14-73
Pincherle Adolf aged 28 09.09.1880

Zentralfriedhof Gate 1 51-11-31 all buried together
Pincherle Angelo aged 17 buried 22.04.1906; Pincherle Jeanette aged 79 died
07.05.1940; Pincherle Wilhelm Dr. aged 63 buried 13.05.1918

PINCHERLE appear to be centred in the Trieste region [once part of the Habsburg
Empire]. Here is a reference to 56 PINCHERLE in Slovenia [Gorizia] Nova Gorica
{Rozna Dolina} http://www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/e-europe/yugoslavia.html

There are 13 PINCHERLE [some are duplicates but all >from Gorizia] listed on Yad
Vashem - all have POTs with extensive links. We remember them all here today.

I wonder if Alberto knew that his family had Moravian origins?
