We could also send these updates (spectators killed in the 1928 Italian Grand Prix, Monza, Materassi's accident):

viewtopic.php?f=26&t=86&p=337268#p337268

Especially for that "Ormanoglou" guy, whose surname was written in every possible way (mm.org has "Omenognu", "Orsingher", "Obergout" and "Hobergant", while "La Stampa" wrote "Omerroghu").
I'm not sure "Ormanoglou" was his real surname, but at least it seems to exist, and the Corriere Della Sera also wrote his name, the father's name and the street where he lived.
Just for the record:

First "Omerroghu":

Then "Obergout" (in the same article):
