I would love to help. Add a photo (straight on, not at angle) of the painting, the back, and a closer view of the signature. You can do this on a desktop computer using the paper clip icon in the box where you type back to me. Let me know if you have any trouble sending pictures.

This artist is not a listed artist in any of the databases for known and famous artists. However, I did find another M.Valentini from 1964 for sale on an Italian antiques site.
