L. Fiorillo was a commercial photographer with a studio in Place Mehemet Ali, Alexandria in the 1870s. His 'cartes-de-visite' were praised in 'Murray's handbook for Egypt' (1875). He photographed the effects of the bombardment of Alexandria in 1882 and published an album of views. L. Fiorillo was possibly a relation of F. Fiorillo.
