Does anybody know anything about the Ocarina maker Ercole Roda?

I assume he was an apprentice of Ercole Mezzetti for Roda's ocarina is very similar to Mezzetti's.
The E. Roda I have was only half painted black. Red paint can be seen in the sides of the bottom thumb holes, but most was worn away from handling over the years.
In my opinion, the Roda sounds better than the Mezzetti ocarina, but the Mezzetti plays perfectly in tune.
This is the only Ercole Roda ocarina I seen that is similar to a Mezzetti.

Comparison of the two.

Scusa Zaha, perchè non hai postato una foto del lato con il foro voicing? In fondo è il lato più importante per un'ocarina.
