Lotto Valentino is an Italian port city. In the 1700s, Lotto Valentino was the site of the Mask Maker serial killings and later became the subject of the Dormentaire family's investigations.

Geography and Layout[]

Lotto Valentino is located on the southeastern coast of Italy, north of Naples. In the early 1700s, it was a small city with a population of around 50,000. Lotto Valentino has a mild climate due to the Mediterranean Sea.

There is only one church in Lotto Valentino, and it is in a state of half-collapse. It is located on the outskirts of the city—unusual for the time, when most church were located in city centers.

The city also houses several libraries, the most prominent of which is The Third Library.


Around the early 1700s, Lotto Valentino was governed differently from other nearby cities. It was overseen by an independent City Police instead of by the Spanish Military Police, and even after the Kingdom of Naples had fallen to Austria around 1707, very little change came to the city and its governor, Esperanza C. Boroñal. Lotto Valentino's political remoteness from the rest of Italy was likely due to the great power held by its commoners. Around this time, they counterfeited gold and created and distributed drugs in order to reduce the influence of the city's aristocrats. Such operations involved the use of child slavery.


In 2003, Victor Talbot described Lotto Valentino as a city "created for alchemists". From the city's founding to at least 1711, Lotto Valentino possessed a high population of alchemists as well as many libraries hosting classes in alchemy. However, this did not prevent many ordinary citizens of Lotto Valentino from having negative opinions on alchemists.
