italian lady with unknown edwardian car

A friend sent me this picture asking me to identify make and model of the car. The location in Italy is unknown, but possibly in the Naples area. I suggested an italian make, but must admit my knowledge on cars does not reach back to the edwardian ones. Should not be very difficult , I guess. Paolo Bordini

About Dunamis in quiz #quiz 414

Author: Luc Ryckaert Saturday, 25 June 2016

Dunamis  What is it quiz 414Some time ago I participated in prewar quiz 414, but meanwhile, I found more information that I would like to share.   I 'm a volunteer for the Belgian Federation of  Ancient Cars (BFOV/FBVA), and once a week we work in Brussels where we put up an information centre. The library of the Belgian Veteran Car Club is located on the same spot. I wanted to know more on Dunamis, and together with a staff member of the RVCCB, I looked in the cabinets. Inside the official catalogue of the XVII Brussels Car Show (1923) I found an advert. The bound volume of the 1923 Englebert Magazines gave some general information and the technical data. 25 HP, 8 cylinders, 70 x 110, 3386 cc, Scintilla ignition, Solex carb, multiple disc clutch, OHV, brakes on all wheels, 895 x 150 tyre size, 45000 francs for the chassis and 60000 francs for the torpédo, by far the most expensive of the belgian cars listed. A Miesse 25 HP car  was  44000 francs and a Métallurgique 26 HP 50000 francs. The coloured advert comes from "De geschiedenis van de Belgische auto", a book issued in 1980 that I have in my own little library.

Regards and keep them rolling,

Marta automobile in Austro Hungarian Empire

Author: George Nica Friday, 10 June 2016

Marta automobile in Austro Hungarian EmpireDear PWC community,

I try to find out what is the make of the car in the picture, and the location  where photo have been shot. 
It may be a Marta, but have no other photos to compare.
Marta ( Magyar Automobil Részvény Társaság Arad) automobiles were build in 1909 under Westinghouse license in Arad. The city is now located in Romania. 
The nice details in the picture, the flag, the flowers, the costumes, etc. sugest that the day was very special.
There is also a "... Janos" shop in the background.
Can anyone help and identify the car, the statue in the background or the building ?

Thank you,
George Nica
