Veber Gulinelli

Veber Gulinelli           

Veber Gulinelli was born in San Pietro in Elda (Modena) in 1930. Farmer's son, after the primary school, he attends the Technical Institute F. Corni in Modena in 1950 and gets his diploma of Expert Industrial Mechanic Technician.


Up to 1957 he is a teacher in technical matters at a school in Carpi (MO) for qualified technicians. Since 1958 he works as a designer first and then manufacturer of tooling machineries.


He approaches the humanitarian culture by chance when presented by a dealer of antiques in Modena some 20 copper and mixture coins of the Este, from Cesare the Duke of Modena till Duke Francesco 3rd, ranging from the late sixteenth century to the late eighteenth century.


In “complete darkness” in the history of the Dukes of Este, he begins extensive and detailed studies through the publications of Girolamo Tiraboschi, of Ludovico Antonio Muratori and the many others in that specific  subject. At the same time he begins researching in the historical archives of the village where he lives, San Felice sul Panaro (MO). Married since 1957, he has four children.


Since 1966 he is member of the Deputation of National History of the Ancient provinces of Modena and is one of the founders, in 1982,  of the Study Group of northern Modena district and, in 1974, he is one of the founders of the Archaeological Museum of San Felice sul Panaro associated with Emilia Prehistoric Studies Centre.


In 2011 he edited the book  Delle carte da Gioco Italiane. Storia e Diletto (About Italian Cards Game. History and Enjoyment) which provides unpublished informations and documents on tarot history.
