In many pages of this site you can already find some
contributions, either as articles (as those by Alberto Rosselli on
other operational theaters outside Mediterranean Sea, in historical
section, here) and as pictures, which several "History fans" sent
me. Many thanks to them all.
I thought to add this section where to collect veterans'
memories and also fans' articles. A very big "thank you"
to all whom will want to collaborate.

Some pages of Lieutenant Fabrizio Romano's War Diary,

which saw the sinking, by torpedoing, of the transport ship Esperia.

If you would like to send me pictures or an article
for publication in this page, feel free to do it, writing me at this
address; rules are very simple: the article (or the pictures)
must regard the site theme and be as much as possible objective. Together
with the article you can tell me if you want me to post your name
or a pseudonym and/or your e-mail address. Obviously, the final decision
about the publication of an article in this site is only mine.
