Jun-22-08  brankat: G.Martinolich died so very young. Italian Champ at the age of 22. Little is known about him, but he was possessed of a considerable talent.
Jul-15-12  Karpova: At the age of 16, Giovanni Martinolich Junior was taught the game of chess by his father Dr. Giovanni Martinolich (solicitor). He really improved after starting to study in Vienna in 1901 where he played against the likes of Dr. Perlis, Dr. Meitner, Aug. Neuman and Dr. Vidmar. In 1903, he came in 2nd behind V. Hruby at the first tournament of the 'Societa scacchistica Triestina' and 2nd behind Gladig one year later. During October 1905 he went back to Vienna and opted for jurisprudence. He also came in 4th at the Vienna Chess Club tournament 1905-1906 (behind Löwy, Vidmar and Tartakower).

Pages 45-46 in the 1911 '(Neue) Wiener Schachzeitung'.
