Silva, Dr. Dr. Silva was created by the Italian author A. Valderas and appeared in a number of novels, beginning with Labara di Ventro (1942).

Dr. Silva is a Great Detective. He is Italian, and is as skillful as uncovering secret passageways in ancient Florentine castles as he is in detecting obscure Amazonian poisons.
