"Sorriso" (=smile) and old Antonio betrayed by their beloved sea / »Sorriso» e il vecchio Antonio, traditi dal mare tanto amato - by Sergio Cinquino
Renato Di Tollo, 39 and about to get married, and Antonio Serafini, 59, from Ortona drowned yesterday on their fishboat, the "Leone Acciaiuoli", which was named after the famous ship which brought the body of San Tommaso back to Ortona from Chio. The two mariners tried the sea even if conditions were bad because they needed the money and trusted their long experience too much. Renato's body has not been found yet, while Antonio's wife, waiting on the dock, could see her husband's body recovered. The two men were the leaders of the fishing community in Ortona, where nobody yet can believe they'll never see them again.
