Can anyone help this Italian fan?

Over on the "Meet the Beatles for Real" facebook page,  a fan named Patrice Moretti posted a photograph of him getting an autograph signed by John Lennon.    From what I can gather, he is looking for the guy in the purple shirt to give him a copy of the photo.  

Here is the message he posted on the page in Italian

Chi l'ha visto?Ciao a tutti, ho già postato questa foto su Beatlesiani d'Italia e provo anche qui, quindi faccio copia e incolla.Lo scopo di questo mio post é quello di regalare una foto con John a quel ragazzo; il ragazzo di cui non ricordo il nome era di BARI e con altri suoi 2 amici stavamo nella stessa mia pensione in Lancaster grove zona Swiss Cottage vicino a Saint John's Wood nel Agosto 1968. Se qualcuno lo riconosce, sarebbe bello fargliela avere. Grazie

And here is the facebook translation into English

If you know the guy in the purple shirt, please contact me so I can let Patrice get the information.   It is sort of a long shot, but many old friends that first met outside the gates of EMI have been reunited through this blog, so it could happen again!
