Dec-06-05  Karpova: here's a picture of rosselli del turco:
Dec-06-05  EmperorAtahualpa: <Karpova> When I try to view the picture I get the following error message: "You are not authorized to view this page"
Dec-07-05  Karpova: ok, here is another try:
Dec-08-05  EmperorAtahualpa: <Karpova> Lol, sorry to say but the second link does not work either! When clicking on your second link I am automatically being forwarded to:

Dec-08-05  Karpova: strange, this link works on my computer.
i found it on this site:
Dec-17-05  nikolaas: Can anybody tell if he was a 'marquis'? Because the tournament book of London 1922 gives in the major open section that a certain "Marquis del Turco" finished 10th.
Dec-17-05  Karpova: i think that this was true but i can't confirm it.
he's called Stefano Rosselli, Marchese del Turco.

here's a biography (just on chess):

  brankat: Well, today is Mr. Rosselli del Turco's birthday. Have a good one, wherever You may be!
Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: On top of winning the Italian Championship 3 times, R.del Turco had fine results in some individual games. He did have a couple of Draws against Alekhine, also vs Dr.Vidmar and Dr.Euwe, Reti and Rubinstein. 2 Wins against Dr.Tarrasch, Gruendfeld, Colle. Apparently he started playing Chess somewhat late, but was possessed of considerable talent.
Jul-17-06  Rocafella: I doubt he can have a good birthday when he's dead...
Jul-17-07  skiskichess5: According to Chessgames he actually beat Tarrasch 3:2 having black in all 5 games!

  Calli: <Can anybody tell if he was a 'marquis'?>

According to the Italian site, storia degli scacchi, he was. The following page says "Marchese" -> Marquis

  dorsnikov: that photo IS NOT Rosseli Del Turko. it's Akiba Rubinstein in the 1930's.
