Who was Vittorio Puzzo?

Vittorio Puzzo was an young boy scout who probably never consider himself that he is doing something so much important that he will leave for the next generation and for the History of the region of Cavagrande del Cassibile, for Sicily, for Italy. He was a very good boy, always cheerful, full of energy and ready to help his friends and every boy scout, he energizes all others with his enthusiasm and desire to discover more and more.

Together with Salvatore Cannarella and Armando Artale they started for the new adventure. Seems everything was going well. They have passed difficult forest of ferns and brambles, Caciparis meanders river, Maruzza coast (the Caves of Deri). They were just thinking to have a dinner and then to go back home. Vittorio and Salvatore left Armando to prepare the dinner and they two went to discover the Caves of Deri.

On the way back a mass of brambles prevented them from the passage to reach their friend. And what to do? The best solution was to climb the rocks to avoid the brambles and then to jump down to the path and go to their friend. Salvatore did this first and he managed well. Vittorio did it for the second but slipping suddenly, fell down and pierced between the abdomen and groin with its own weight, the stick was gone deep.

Armando went immediately to look for help. The help came just on the next day. Then in the hospital he fighted for his life a few days but ...
