Handwritten note in Italian on a handmade card, offering "little Marco" a kiss.
Autograph Note (in Italian) signed: "Al piccolo Marco/un becio {To Little Marco, a kiss]/Licia Albanese", 5¼x3¼. Cloth angel and bird stickers affixed. Italian operatic soprano Licia Albanese (1909-2014) specialized in the works of Puccini. She is associated especially with Madam Butterfly, which she first performed in 1934 after replacing an absent performer. Albanese was with the Met from her 1940 debut there until 1966. She remained in New York, teaching at the Julliard School and elsewhere, and was honored with the Handel Medallion (2000) for her contribution to the cultural life of New York City. The Licia Albanese-Puccini Foundation has been supporting young artists since 1974. She thrilled guests at a dinner celebration of her 100th birthday, with a piercing high note. Lightly toned and soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
