Chieti - Montingelli dies at 100 / Addio a Montingelli, scomparso a 100 anni
Vincenzo Montingelli, a Carabinieri major, was born in Andria and at 18 was already a Carabiniere and was sent on duty to Torricella Peligna, where he married and raised his two sons. He was a prisoner of the British in a camp in Africa and there saved the life of an English soldier giving him his water. Thanks to that gesture, he was moved to London, and one evening also taken to the Royal Albert Hall. On his 100th birthday he gave his relatives and friends silver cases with the words "I wish also to you to celebrate your 100th birthday".
