After Valerio enters the priesthood at 16, he joins his uncle Monsignor Giuseppe Anzino who is one of Chaplains in the Chapel of Vittorio Emmanuel II at the Royal Palace in Torino. Valerio first shows up on the “Calendario generale del Regno” in 1849. This document was prepared annually by the Kingdom of Sardenia and listed many things including the names and positions of people working for House of Savoy in running the Kingdom of Sardenia. Uncle Monsignore Giuseppe Anzino has been working at the Royal Palace at least since 1825 at the age of 20.
