RIP Oscar Bonivento (1914-2012)
Written by Brian Stephenson   

Our Italian friend Ivo Fasiori emails us to inform us that the veteran Italian chess composer Professor Oscar Bonivento died in the hospital in Bologna on 1st October. As well as his composing activities, Bonivento edited chess problem columns and produced many books about Italian chess composition and composers.

No doubt a more informed obituary will appear in The Problemist in due course. In the meantime here is one of the Professor's later successes.

The BCPS sends its condolences to Professor Bonivento's family and friends and to all Italian Problemists.
