Miscellaneous

DE CURTÒ Y DÍAZ Joaquim de Tots els Sants. From Catalunya (Regne d'Espanya); currently in Hong Kong. My last name is 'De Curtò', that signifies 'to cut' in Latin. Happily married to De Zarzà y Cubero. A tribute to some of my family, ancestors and mentors: De Curtò i Bel (my father): passionate about cars, mechanics and painting. De Curtò i Berengué (my grandpa): he survived the civil war and protected the family until just after I was born. Bel i Bosch (my grandma): she knew beforehand I was the chosen one. Supported my education and all my ventures, she truly believed in me. Masterson (my teacher of English from age 7 until 17, and onwards a real supporter and a second mother): from Edinburgh (Scotland). She has taught me how to be a good Briton.
