Hi, my name is Renzo, I'm the President of ANTIPES, an Italian Association of Collectors of Old Fishing Equipment.
I just joined this interesting forum, I am an expert on Italian reels, I am available for any information regarding these. I'm retired so I can afford to do the repair and restorer of old reels, it's my hobby (but not really).
Greetings to everyone

We are very glad you sent your post. I announced to our members in Branson at the ORCA National "Breakfast with the Board" on Friday that you had posted an invitation to all of us to share our knowledge of Italian reels especially to take advantage of your expertise.
Thank you. We are fortunate to have you.

Thanks for joining us! As you know, we have diverse collecting interests, and it is exciting to have an expert about Italian reels join us. I suspect you will be fielding lots of questions from ORCA members. Hopefully, we can return the favor of your kindness and willingness to help by finding some reals you are looking for! I really enjoy seeing involvement of collectors from outside of North America.
