I'm not an expert in Italian paratroopers. I think that the article written by Paolo Marzetti appeared on issue no. 13 of the italian militaria magazine "Milites". I have a copy of that issue.
You should try to ask to the editor a copy of the magazine.
There is an on-line order form at the following website:
their e-mail address is:

could make a scan of the magazine for you.
This is a good group . Thank You, Jay
Any one have any information on this vest ? It looks to have 25 pockets for ammo for the carcano rifle ? Photos ? Thank You, Jay
Do not take Me the Wrong Way - The Information ,I am asking for - Is for Myself -NOT TO MAKE SOME THING FOR RESALE !
Jay, be patient! An article, dealing with the 'Pazienza' vest you mean, will come out in one

The article with the 'pazienza' vest will come out on the October 2007 issue of U&A! Enjoy!
