Here is a cut and paste translation to the link:Remember Pietro Pinucci?
He made some technically interesting videos during AC36 with his partner Vittorio d'Albertas (who BTW is still doing this for AC37, but only in Italian)
America's Cup: Pietro Pinucci entra nel design team di American Magic | Farevela.network oPensacola– Complimenti a Pietro Pinucci, il velaio Quantum Italia che è entrato nel team American Magic per la 37th America’s Cup. Pinucci, nel tempo libero anche buon finnista, è stato insieme a Vittorio d’Albertas protagonista delle nostre notti di dirette per seguire la 36th America’s Cup da...farevela.net
Well, Pietro is now part of AM's sail design team - battens and leech control.
Not only that, but it appears AM really raided LRPP since they also got CFD guru Mario Caponnetto, Giorgio Provinciali (VPP) and Davide Tagliapietra (structures)
These were all LRPP veterans, so I wonder what's behind this and how it was received by Max
Pensacola– Congratulations to Pietro Pinucci, the Quantum Italia sailmaker who joined the American Magic team for the 37th America's Cup. Pinucci, who is also a good Finnist in his spare time, was together with Vittorio d'Albertas the protagonist of our live nights to follow the 36th America's Cup from Auckland, where he has always stood out for his expertise and his technical analyzes on the various details of the AC75s.
Pinucci will be part of the design team of the New York Yacht Club union, taking care of the aero part, therefore sails and related equipment, from battens to mainsail and jib management systems.
Pinucci thus joins the large group of Italian professionals already present in the American Magic design team: Mario Caponnetto, Davide Tagliapietra, Giorgio Provinciali, Paolo Motta and Andrea Mannarino, the latter two coming from the Milan Polytechnic.
A dream that comes true thanks to professionalism and competence.
