Pietro Castiglioni passed away

Was reading Facebook and Carbon McCoy posted that he passed from a massive heart attack last night.

Pietro's Reading Concours was an east coast legend and introduced me to the world of ferrari judging.

May he rest in peace.

Current: 85' GTS QV
It's a simple process...... it's just complicated by human beings....

Pietro's Reading show was consistently the largest east coast gathering of vintage Ferraris with the exception of Cavallino; and he always got more vintage 2+2s that you would see @ Cav. He also introduced the US to Sergio Scaglietti; I am pretty certain that Scaglietti had never been to the US until Pietro invited him over for Reading in 2001. On a personal note, Pietro helped us in our Ferrari research, translating many, many Ferrari assembly data sheets and other tech documents that my dad had collected over the years.

His gatherings had a family touch that I have never experienced w/ any other show; you felt like you were at an Italian family gathering at Reading.

RIP, Pietro.

Very sad.
I wish I had the opportunity to meet him.
He was a consummate Ferrari consigliore.
RIP

I always enjoyed going to Reading (when I could). Pietro was a very nice person and a true Tifosi. Thoughts and prayers to the Castigilioni family.

RIP Pietro.
