In June 1930 he published a similar ad:

"Italian Minerals Superfine Specimens from all countries. New Minerals. Rare old species from Vesuvius. All interesting volcanic minerals. Volcanic rocks. Very cheap prices. Roberto Palumbo, 2 Via Fracastoro, Rome (27), Italy."

He coauthored an article for Rocks & Minerals in April 1945, on the ancient volcano of Latium and the minerals of Ariccia near Rome, giving his address 211 Corso Trieste, Rome. Apparently, according to one of his labels for augite crystals, he also had a farm in Villafranca, Cecchina (Rome).
