Biography

Gastone Pierini took part in four Olympic Games between 1924 and 1936, always in the lightweight class. He belonged to a group of Italian families who lived in Egypt before the war. Therefore, he never competed in Italian Championships. At the end of World War II, he spent five years (probably 1943-48) in a war camp near in El-Fayid in Egypt, most likely interned as a civilian. After his release he emigrated to Brazil, where he died in 1967.
