RIP Lallo Petrucci - a legend sadly missed.

Michelangelo 'Lallo' Petrucci, founding partner of the Italian Class A and of the historic BiMare shipyard, until a few years ago the most important in the world for the construction of Class A, passed away on Friday 1 September. He was 82 years old.

Lallo Petrucci was very important for Italian sailing, both as a sailor and as a boatbuilder. For many things he was a volcanic, whimsical and inventive entrepreneur; the A-Class owes much to his work since the 1970s

His ashes will be scattered at sea according to his wishes.

Cat A Italia expresses its deepest condolences to his wife Daniela and their sons Valerio and Michele
