Greetings from Italy!

Just to focus your attention on the Open tournament in “Villaggio Alimini” near Otranto (south Italy) where the young Marina Brunello (16 years old) got her first IM norm and WGM norm.

She won against GM S. Drazic and drew after 116 moves against GM Korneev.
Games, results, photos details on

Marina is WIM and two weeks ago she received an important honor directly from Mr Giorgio Napolitano, the President of Italian Republic. Video of the ceremony (at Quirinale) on

Marina plays for the chess club “Società Scacchistica Milanese”. She is a student of the Scientific Lyceum.

Thanks, best regards
