  whiteshark: Ernesto Hellmann was born in Venice on <November 9th 1898>. He learned the game from his father at 16, but only at the beginning of World War I, finding himself at the front as a complement officer, began to play. Transferred to Bologna he met the great Ferrara problem composer [problemista] <Arturo Carrą>, who became his first teacher.

Discharged, as a war invalid in the autumn of 1920 [?*], he returned to Venice and became the secretary of the new Venetian Chess Club, a position he held with commitment and passion for many years.

In the <Milan magistral tournament of 1922> he finished fourth with 8 points out of 13 and in the masterful tournament of <Foligno in 1924>, arriving second on a par with 6.5 points out of 9 together with Monticelli and Sacconi, he obtained a well deserved promotion to maestro.

At the Olympics in <The Hague 1928> he obtained 4 points out of 8 in the fourth board and a victory over the Swedish Stahlberg, future great master. E Hellmann vs Stahlberg, 1928

The following year, in the first international tournament in <Venice 1929>, he achieved his greatest success: third-fourth with 7.5 out of 11 and first among the Italians, with a great victory over Czech Rejfir.

Although his health began to decline from 1932, he continued to play with energy, but his class emerged more in individual games than in the tournament complex.

For example, in the <Italian championship of 1947> he did not pass, with 3 points out of 5, the elimination round, but he defeated the future winner of the race, Vincenzo Castaldi, with a beautiful attacking match.

In the <Italian championship of 1948> he obtained 50% of the points, but an inexorable medical ban forced him to give up the competitive activity.

He died in his beloved hometown on <9 September 1952>.
