Carlo Alberto Pagni (†)

Prof. Pagni, retired but restless brain surgeon from Turin now living in Milan, is very concerned about the history of correspondence chess, many of his publications show that. The inclusion of his three small works from 1994-1997 in "Scacchi senza Quartiere", published in 2004 by the active company "Caissa Italia editore" seems particularly pleasing to me. In the meantime our friend Romano Bellucci has published a supplement as volume 4 of the "Correspondence Chess Matches between Clubs 1823-1899" (Scacchi e Science Applicate 2006).
