I started with Leo Colovini, one of the greatest Italian designers with more than 50 games published in 25 years of work! This means that he designed games when I was just taking my first steps in the boardgaming world!
Leo Colovini was interviewed by me also in the “Cosa Bolle in Pentola?” series published on Boardgamenews. I really hope Eric could retrieve this interview from the ashes of his great web site! I have uploaded it also on ludologo.wordpress.com
