Additional Notes In 1911 Albertini was involved in the campaign against Italy's war with Turkey and shortly thereafter was implicated in a plot to assassinate King Victor Emanuel III. On the eve of World War I, before arriving in the United States, he had traveled around the world and was imprisoned in and expelled from Spain, France, and Switzerland. Once settled in Chicago he worked as a prompter for plays staged by anarchist groups to raise money for political prisoners.
