Vittorio Alvaro after his gender reassignment surgery on June 29, 1958 in Sicily.


Vittorio Alvaro was allegedly the first trans man in Italy to undergo gender reassignment surgery in Sicily after World War II. This enabled him to marry his wife, Serafina. Not much is known about him because he never appeared in the media again after that. He spent his life in his birthplace of Giffone in Calabria, where he worked in agriculture.
