Hi
A simple question, but maybe not a simple answer?

Is it Menato Boffa or Mennato Boffa?

I have used the search facility and both appear. Even posts by our normally reliable gurus differ.
Searching the Interweb throws up as many 'NN' as 'N'

Does anyone know the definitive spelling of Boffa's name?

I'd put my money on Mennato, but have no official documentation to back that up

The reprint of Sheldon V7 has 'Menato'... just mentioning it.

All references I can find in the Italian newspaper La Stampa are to Mennato Boffa. For example:
