Origins: Giacomino in aeroplano

From: GUEST,Jeff Illingworth

Hello. I am looking, ideally, for a recorded copy of a song called "Giacomino in aeroplano". My 91.5 year old mother-in-law sings bits of it sometimes and it has become a family mystery that everyone wants to solve. I've done several searches and found only the following:
Giacomino in aeroplano
canzonetta
novita Natale di Palma,
musica di E. Bevilacqua, of Italy,
canto e mandolino. 4to.
[363
Jan. 3, 1916 2 c. Jan. 7, 1916
E 367786; Arturo Matacea, New
York.

From a 1916 musical copyright book. Any help would be most appreciated.

Me too. My Nonnie sang it to me when I was a child.

I don't suppose this song, titled "Come si Canta in Guerra" is what you're looking for? I don't see the word aeroplano but it's by the same guy and has pictures of airplanes along the bottom of the page.

This book repeatedly turned up under search results for Natale di Palma - I didn't see anything that was obviously formatted like a song but that doesn't mean it's not in there somewhere.

Searching for "E. Bevilacqua" turned up this and this -- same story as above.

Perhaps most promising, searching that title gives you this page which is on the surface useful. Supposedly somewhere in there, there is text matching the words "Giacomino in Aeroplane" but I can't figure out a way to streamline looking through it and I'm not going to sift through 199 images in the hopes of finding it -- if someone knows a better way to search those LOC sites though, let me know. If you view a single image you can click "show text" - that may help some

Good luck!

Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Roma seems to have something in its catalog called "Giacomino e l'aeroplano"

I don't know how to link to search results (that's a problem with many websites), so you may have to go here and do your own search:

I am not adept at using this website because I don't know any Italian!

"Giacomino e l'aeroplano" is a book for kids.

NEVER MIND! "Giacomino e l'aeroplano" seems to be a children's book, not a song. And it's probably not old enough to be what you're looking for.
