It should be noted that D. Marcio Veloz Maggiolo (RIP) is mentioned several times in the book due to the articles he wrote and that he was a historian, author, etc. Unfortunately, he died not even a week ago from COVID in Santo Domingo. Just a few days from when this much anticipated book of the Italian influence in the Dominican Republic is put in circulation. Maggiolo is a well known Italian origin last name in the origins of the Dominican Armada (navy) because along with another Italian (Juan Bautista Cambiaso) the Dominican navy was basically created and they were very active in the creation of the Dominican Republic. It should be noted that a sail boat in the Dominican navy is named Cambiaso in his memory.
