Catalogue Note

Countess Lilliana Teruzzi, née Weinmann (d.1987), was a Polish-born opera singer who performed under the name of Lillian Lorma.  In 1926 she married Count Attilio Teruzzi, an officer and official in Mussolini's fascist government, but the couple divorced in 1929.  She later settled in New York, where she was a benefactor of the Metropolitan Opera, and she also donated a large collection of Italian furniture and English silver to the Metropolitan Museum in 1971.
