Considering that her husband, Giovanni Martinuzzi, has been deceased since 1978, it seems to me that his profile should be open. Emma and Giovanni were married in Oct 1926 and separated in 1938. Their only child was a son who was born in 1937 and only lived for six months. Emma and Giovanni's marriage was not happy. She drove him out of the house in 1938 and lived single for the rest of her life.

Emma was the eldest of eight children (five daughters and three sons). She had a long-lived family: her mother, an aunt and some of her siblings turned 90, and one of her sisters, Angela Morano (1908–2011),[8] died at age 102. Until 1954, Morano worked at Maioni Industry, a jute factory in her town. She subsequently worked in the kitchen of Collegio Santa Maria, a Marianist boarding school in Verbania.
