On You Tube there is the Santuzza-Alfio duet with Guelfi and Simionato, in which both are fabulous! He is also the Alfio  with Cossotto on the Von K recording and DVD. Did he ever perform at the Met or in the US?

Yes, it was an outdoor arena that featured many legendary evenings,
including a well known Aida with Anita Cerquetti. I believe that
the Amonasro duet with Gian Giacomo Guelfi is on Youtube. His
ovation is among the most memorable I've ever heard, and though
he was not a refined vicalist, he was immensely exciting. That audience
certainly thought so!

So was she!
