Santo Daniele Spina
Our Italian member Santo Daniele Spina is an extremely industrious author. Michael Negele once met him personally in Catania, see his former report from December 2007 - in English or German.
Santo Spina was so kind to send Michael Negele his latest book, naturally no chess book (apart from the obligatory picture of Pietro Carrera and the numerous chess contributions in the large bibliography). Here is the cover (as PDF) and also Santo Spina’s impressive list of publications (until October 2012).

But you will find a lot of chess (and some links to his local exhibitions) in his blog santospina.wordpress.com/ - really an incredibly diligent man.
(According to Michael Negele.)
