[what is this?]
Arturo Reggio was born in Gorizia*. He started playing chess as an engineering student at the Graz University of Technology and at the Imperial-Royal Polytechnic Institute of Vienna, both in Austria. After he settled in Milan in the 1890s he joined the Societá Scacchistica Milanese and later edited a chess column for the magazine, La Bicicletta.

He was (unofficial) Italian champion in 1900, 1901, 1905, 1913 and 1916. His tournament record contains numerous first place finishes: Reggio placed first in Rome (1900), Venice (1901), Florence (1905), Bologna (1913), and Milan (1916). He passed away in Milan in 1917.

Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-30-07  maxxowar: He won against Spielmann, Marshall, Duras; he drew with Blackburne and Nimzowitsch. Well, I know there are a lot of lost games, but he was born in Gorizia like me and I'm proud of that.
Jul-30-07  brankat: Good show my friend! Regarding your Profile, You are doing OK. As far as Chess is concerned I've wasted some 35 years :-)
Jul-30-07  Andreiko: Reggio passed away 54 years old. not so old...and the cause?

  juan31: Each time that i see this dates to me is the confirmation that the chess is an art that makes semi inmortal the player, maybe dont exist other science-sport- art, similar to chess.
Apr-19-18  zanzibar: Hooper & Whyld (Oxford Companion) omits mention of this player ... ?!

Is there no better photograph/portrait of him available?
