Chello identification...help wanted

I was just researching my Stelio Maglia viola and found your post.  The signature on my viola looks the same except on yours he put his last name first.  I read his biography and he attended luthier school in 1942, so maybe your label just has the wrong year.   I feel the same as you, I LOVE my viola.  Finding it 20 years ago changed my life and enabled me to excel as a violist in ways that were not possible before.
