Maybe U wrong with the fact he was the first among the Italians born players,
(at the time Canal Esteban was consider almost Italian cause he was already a long time living there, playing for the Venice's chess club)....
I knew The result of Venice 1948 cause 2 of my favorite players, Canal and Najdorf, had had there a very good achievment.
