We thanks Flavio Barbiero for having published on his website, several further details about Cepparo’s expedition to Antarctica and the subsequent “Antarctico Due” expedition.
Flavio Barbiero (pic aside) lives in Italy. He is a retired Admiral in the Italian Navy who last served with NATO. In addition He is an archaeological researcher in Israel as well as the author of several books, including “The Bible without secrets” and “The secret Society of Moses”.
In his website, Flavio Barbiero describes the First Expedition to Antarctica by Renato Cepparo, with rare pics.
We also suggest to read “The Expedition Antartico Due”. Even if it is not yet translated, the narrative gives more details of the too little known Italian epic in Antarctica.
