I have known Stefano for years. He has been a great supporter of research in never were warship subjects and has been very encouraging to me on building many of my Italian never Were subjects. He was the one behind the Battleships & Knights website and has provided invaluable research on Italian and Austro Hungarian designs.
He was a dear friend which whom I corresponded with regularly. His sense of humor and kind willingness to share his information was a treasure and we spend more than a few late nights on FB messenger exchanging findings, drawings and just tidbits about our lives and love of the hobby.
Fair winds and following seas, buon amico😢😢😢
