Biography

Paolo Salvi was twice a member of the victorious Italian gymnastics squad that took Olympic gold in 1912 and 1920. At the 1911 World Championships, Salvi won silver in pommelled horse and bronzes in parallel bars and in team all-around. He was also a member of Italian gymnastics team that won bronze in team all-around at the 1913 World Championships. He later served as a judge. In November 1944, Salvi was arrested for the first time and in 1945 was killed in an unknown German concentration camp, which was probably Mauthausen.
