Fausto Coppi from Castellania

Post by kime900 » 09 Jun 2008, 20:19

I'm looking for information on my grandfather's cousin, Angelo Fausto Coppi, the great Italian cyclist. I'm also looking for information on his siblings, his parents, and his children. Here is what I have so far:

Full Name: Angelo Fausto Coppi (he was in the Italian army, captured by the British and held as prisoner of war in North Africa)
Birth: 15 Sep 1919 in Castellania (Alexandria)
Death: 2 Jan 1960 in Tortona, Italy
Father: Domenico Coppi
Mother: Angiolina Boveri
Siblings: Maria Coppi, Livio Coppi, Claudina Coppi, Serse Coppi (d: 1951)
Wife: Bruna Ciampolini (married 22 Nov 1945)
Daughter of Fausto Coppi and Bruna Ciampolini: Marina Coppi (b: 1 Nov 1947 in Genova)

Fausto left Bruna Ciampolini to live with Giulia Occhini in 1953.
Son of Fausto Coppi and Giulia Occhini: Angelo Fausto (Faustino) Coppi (b: 13 May 1955 in Argentina).

If anyone can help fill in some gaps and/or provide additional information it would be greatly appreciated!!
