Titolo: Dott.
Nome:
Secondo nome: Bechere
Cognome:
Suffisso: (Cell)

and VueMinder import in:
Titolo: Dott.
Nome: Bechere
Cognome: (Cell.)
Suffisso:

Why?

VueMinder is expecting a first name (i.e., a given name or the "Nome" value). Since the contact's first name hasn't been specified, it throws off the import. I'll fix this in the next version. In the meantime, try entering the person's given name in the "Nome" field before importing. That should fix it.

A last question... I have seen it import contact directly from gmail site with user account and password. It's a very good and usefull feature. Very power. But a way to import also a simple .vcf file?

VueMinder can't import from vcf files. However, version 11.0 include numerous improvements to importing contacts from Google, including a correction to how contacts without a first name are imported. Version 11.0 can also automatically sync contacts with Google.

A pre-release beta is available if you'd like an early look. It can be downloaded here:
