Again it´s my sad duty to report about the passing of a good friend, a founding member of the Ken Whyld Association.
In late 2002 or early 2003 I got in contact with the Italian chess editor and publisher
(* 9th July, 1940 in Rome; † 15th September, 2017 in Venice).
His wonderful magazine Scacchi e Scienze Applicate (started in 1981) was well known to me. At that time Romano, who came already during wartimes to Venice, and was a school friend of Antonio Rosino, was most enthusiastic about German chess history.
