Regarding Fabio Fiallo. Fabio Federico Fiallo Cabral (February 3, 1866 - August 29, 1942) was a Dominican writer, poet and politician. Fiallo was nephew of the Dominican President General José María Cabral y Luna, uncle of the fashion designer Óscar de la Renta Fiallo, and uncle and father-in-law of the political and anti-Trujillo activist Viriato Fiallo.
It is not known when he won a popular vote that consecrated him as the "Poet of Love", but his romantic poetry was very popular.
He was held in prison in May 1921 during the 1916-1924 US intervention in the Dominican Republic for writing 'inflammatory editorials'.
