  TheAlchemist: <Dr Mario Napolitano was born on the 10th of February 1910 in Acquaviva delle Fonti, Italy>

He should have been born in Napoli.

Feb-10-06  THE pawn: GMC title? isn't it a Truck company? (''General motors of Canada'' or something like that.) What does it stand for? Grandmaster candidate?
