IL LIBRETTO DI IDENTITÀ DEL "GENNARIELLO" DEL RAID ROMA-TOKIO DA DE PINEDO THE LOG BOOKG OF THE "GENNARIELLO" SEAPLANE OF THE FLIGHT ROME-TOKYO BY DE PINEDO. 1925, Il libretto di identità dell'idrovolante biplano da ricognizione SIAI (Società Idrovolanti Alta Italia) S.16 Bis (trasformato in S.16 Ter), matricola 25340, del Raid Roma-Tokio. L'unico e straordinario documento contenente numerose ed interessantissime informazioni sull'apparecchio che completerà il raid di 55.000 km in 80 tappe e 370 ore di volo e che supererà il record mondiale di lunghezza percorsa fino ad allora eseguita in volo. Per questa impresa, il pilota verrà nominato marchese dal Re d'Italia e soprannominato "il Signore delle distanze" da Italo Balbo. Francesco De Pinedo fu uno dei tre piloti più importanti della storia aeronautica italiana ed uno dei più rilevanti al mondo (molto più significativo come pilota di Italo Balbo). Le seguenti informazioni sono estratte del presente documento: Uscito dalle officine della SIAI il 10.10.24 e collaudato in volo all'idroscalo SIAI di S. Anna il 16.10.24. Dopo il cambio del motore (vedere paragrafo successivo), un nuovo collaudo avvenne il 17.4.25 con il Comandante De Pinedo come pilota collaudatore, registrando una salita a 2.000 metri in 18 minuti, con informazioni addizionali come i giri del motore a terra, in salita ed in linea di volo, ed il tipo di elica SIAI ed il motore Lorraine installato. Nella "2a parte - Variazioni nelle assunzioni in carico dell'apparecchio", reca il testo manoscritto di suo pugno, accompagnato dal timbro e la firma dell' "Ufficiale di Sorveglianza Tecnica": "Consegnato al Com.te De Pinedo per il raid Roma-Tokio Melbourne". Nella parte dedicata ai voli eseguiti, De Pinedo registra con la sua calligrafia i voli dal 20 al 25 aprile, comprese le date, durata del volo, altezza raggiunta e la tappa corrispondente, incluse da Sesto Calende il 20 aprile fino a Bagdad il 25 aprile, via Varano-Torre Pelosa-Brindisi-Leros-Alessandretta, con un altezza massima raggiunta nell'ultimo percorso Alessandretta-Bagdad di 2.800 m; nel primo registro si vede chiaramente la firma caratteristica "F de Pinedo", non eseguita per gli altri cinque registri sotto, che sono indicati con virgolette doppie (vedere foto). Non ci sono altre registrazioni di voli posteriori, forse perché De Pinedo non lo ha più ritenuto necessario. Nella sezione del libretto dedicata a "Riparazioni, modifiche, dichiarazioni fuori uso", compaiono le colonne per registrare "Data" e "Lavori Eseguiti"; in data 3.2.25 fu smontato il motore Fiat per subire la trasformazione da Idro S16 Bis in Idro S16 Ter con motore Lorraine 450 HP n° 32076 (De Pinedo si recherà in Francia in marzo 1925 per una visita alla fabbrica Lorraine, dove era già stato Campanelli -il meccanico- a far pratica). Il 20 aprile, con l'inizio del Raid, De Pinedo scrive a mano "Riparato il serbatoio dell'olio essendosi dissaldati i tubi di raccordo", firmando sotto "F de Pinedo". Il 25 e 26 aprile, pochi giorni giorni dopo la partenza da Sesto Calende per il "Raid Roma-Tokio", De Pinedo scrive "Riparato il serbatoio dell'olio essendosi dissaldato" sia ad Alessandretta che a Bagdad, aggiungendo in quest'ultimo caso la parola "nuovamente". Assieme al lotto successivo, si tratta di una delle più spettacolari ed importanti rarità di tutta l'aerofilia italiana. The log book of the SIAI S.16 Bis (converted into S.16 Ter) "Gennariello" Seaplane of the Flight Rome-Tokyo by Francesco De Pinedo, featuring technical characteristics of the seaplane including the propellers and engine, with entries and signatures by De Pinedo including the testing flight with the new engine Lorraine and registering the flights of the first five days of the Flight Rome-Tokyo, from Sesto Calende to Bagdad, denoting repairs to the engine as a result of an oil leak. This flight broke the world record for the longest distance ever achieved, 55,000 km, which had a great impact in the world.

ID booklet, official programme for the awards (Palmarès) (missing covers). Medal: Created by the engraver Raoul Bénard and minted at the Monnaie de Paris, the obverse the medal shows an athlete raising their arms in a sign of victory, holding a pair of skis and a pair of skates, with a mountain silhouette in the background. The reverse bears an inscription on fourteen lines: "Chamonix / Mont-Blanc / sports d’hiver / 25 janvier - 5 février 1924 / organisés / par le / Comité Olympique français / sous le haut patronage / du Comité / International Olympique / à l’occasion / de la célébration / de la / VIIIe Olympiade", in gilt silver and marked on the edge with the hallmark of the Monnaie de Paris and "2 SILVER", weighing 77 grams. Condition: Rim nicks, original patina. Provenance: Acquired by the current owner directly from the Schläppi family. Rarity: According to the official medal count, only 33 first place gold winner’s medals were awarded. Several of which certainly now reside in institutional collections. This example being one of the very few in private hands with the provenance and documentation of who it was awarded to. Participant's diploma: 55.5x35cm, with design by Plumereau and printing by Debar in brown, green and white, showing skier in front of mountainous scenery with awards legend showing printed signatures of the President of the International Olympic Committee, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, and the President of the French Olympic Committee, Count Justinien de Clary, with awards legend at right showing manuscript "Mr A. Schläppi de l'equipe suisse 1er du Turnoi de Bobsleigh". The lot also includes 7 real photo postcards and 3 press photos of the team, 3 newspapers/magazines from February 1924 and some modern newspaper clippings and a book. It also includes a letter from Scherrer, the captain of the bobsleigh team. The Story: Eduard Scherrer entered a local raffle at his gymnastics club in his home village of Leysin in the early 1920s, and won a bobsleigh in the draw. He persuaded his friends Alfred Schläppi, Heinrich Schläppi and Alfred Neveu to drive down the road from Leysin to Le Sépey with him, to the amusement of the villagers. When they registered for the Swiss qualifiers for the winter sports week in Chamonix, it was more of a joke, but to their own surprise, they won and were accepted into the Swiss team. They drove to Chamonix as rank outsiders. Nine teams from five nations entered the competition, which like today, involved four runs held over the two days. France, Great Britain, Italy and Switzerland each had two teams, with Belgium’s solitary quartet completing the field. An electronic timekeeper, capable of measuring to the nearest hundredth of a second, was used at the event. Scherrer was captain of the Switzerland I bob and was accompanied by Neveu and the Schläppi brothers. They went on to set a new track record at Pèlerins and take the gold medal with an aggregate time of 5:45.54, well ahead of Great Britain II (5:48.83) and Belgium I (6:02.29). Remarkably, Chamonix 1924 would represent this team's one and only Olympic adventure. Although the Schläppi brothers would later chair the organising committee for the 1948 Winter Games in St. Moritz. (Ref: olympics.com) Speaking to Roger Félix as part of the “Avant-première sportive” program, Alfred Schläppi, 75, talked about the Chamonix feat: “We were four gymnasts from Leysin...It was a 1650 meter track, there were 23 turns. We took 1’22” to get it down. I was 4th, brakeman, but I never needed to use the brakes. If he needed to, the captain could brake. I never needed to use them."(Image 1) (Image 2) (Image 3) (Image 4) (Image 5) (Image 6) (Image 7) (Image 8) (Image 9) (Image 10) (Image 11)
