tenente colonnello Sforza and capitano Spagnolini

Gents
Back in 1946 tenente colonnello Sforza and capitano Spagnolini of Italian Air Force were assigned to RAF units to gain experience on Spitfire IXs. Who were they? I find Riccardo Spagnolini, Francesco Sforza and Sforza Libera, all of RA experience, but no information on their whereabouts.
TIA
Franek

Thanks, must be Francesco Sforza then, it makes sense. Travaglini must be another person, though. Interesting, there seems no references online for Sforza and Spagnolini except few mentions.
