About The Author

Antonio Capaldo was born at Campo di Giove, Italy on 14th July 1948. Authentic mountaineer, he spent his adolescence in close contact with nature in a mainly agricultural and pastoral farming environment at the foot of the Majella massif.
After high school he passed the admission course and joined the Air Force Academy in Italy. He then obtained a license as military pilot at USAF Air Force School in the US.  He served as an Air Force Pilot on C-130 aircraft at Pisa Air Base for 19 years. He had the opportunity to travel around the world and carry out several humanitarian missions.

Then he was transferred to Latina Flight School where he worked as an instructor and flight examiner, holding the position of Group commander.  After a 2-year service for the Major Staff of the Italian Air Force, he went on leave.  Despite the sadness of his novel, he has been very lucky in life.  Two wonderful parents taught him to love and respect nature and its laws.

He has had satisfactory work experience both economically and professionally, first as a military pilot in the Italian Air Force, and now as a fire-fighting pilot for civil defense.  He is not rich, but he cannot complain…he is content with what he has, which is everything he needs.
