  GrahamClayton: Castaldi was a dentist by profession, which limited his playing opportunities.

His best tournament victory was 1st at Venice 1948, ahead of Euwe and Opocensky.

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.
