This just in from Ettore:

[I think you may be interested in this Italian Disney-related book:

La vera storia della Regina di Biancaneve, dalla Selva Turingia a Hollywood by Stefano Poggi and published by Raffaello Cortina Editore (2007).

The author esplores the connections between Uta, Margravess of Meissen, a mediaeval aristocrat, patron of the Cathedral of Naumburg, and Ghrimilde, the evil queen from Disney's "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". These connections are inspired to the author by the strong similarity between a statue in the Cathedral of Naumburg and the famous Disney villain during a trip in 1999.]
