Billy Lee Tipton (born as Dorothy Lucille Tipton, December 29, 1914 - January 21, 1989) was an American jazz musician and bandleader who lived as a man for over 50 years. Tipton found modest success as a professional musician, but until his dying moments, the fact that Tipton had been born female was known only to two female cousins and perhaps some of his paramours as well.

The Vittoriale degli italiani (English translation: The shrine of Italian victories) is a hillside estate in the town of Gardone Riviera overlooking the Garda lake in Lombardy, Italy. It is where the Italian writer Gabriele d’Annunzio lived after his defenestration in 1922 until his death in 1938. The estate consists of the residence of d’Annunzio called the Prioria (priory), an amphitheatre, the light cruiser Puglia set into a hillside, a boathouse containing the MAS vessel used by D’Annunzio in 1918 and a circular mausoleum. Its grounds are now part of the Grandi Giardini Italiani.
