IL PADRONE DEL VENTO LA LUNGA VITA FELICE DI AGOSTINO STRAULINO (The Master of the Wind: The Long Happy Life of Agostino Straulino)
by Giuliano Gallo
Published by Casa Editrice Nutrimenti

The long life of the most honored sailor in Italy as told by those who knew him. His fellow sailors, his students, his childhood friends speak of a man who loved and knew the sea as no other. In the years from adolescence at Lussinpiccolo to the start of war, from the gold medal at the Helsinki Olympic Games to the victories as Star World Champion, from the first adventurous travels of the Corsaro II to the legendary command of the Vespucci, of which, in this book, is published the unedited diary of this cruising school, written by Straulino.

Ninety years of joy, ninety years all on the sea. A private portrait, intimate, not only about regattas. The story of a man ironic yet light-hearted, strict and passionate. A man who loved to the end his life and the sea

In all Italian bookstores at .14,00.
