Is it relevant to mention that the Italian government was Fascist? Italian Fascist government could be shortened to Italian government without losing anything relevant to the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SleepyWeisel (talk • contribs) 18:29, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
Looks like POV language needs neutralising. Inline citations needed. -84user (talk) 21:23, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
Done. Am adding more detail from Cross's book. Any additions from the Italian or Czech books about the crash are welcome. Benvenuto (talk) 08:23, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
The sentence "Dog sledge team led by the trapper Hilmar Nøis and Rolf S. Tandberg supported partly by two Italian alpine students Albertini and Matteoda." is partially incorrect. The italian book "Gianni Albertini -ALLA RICERCA DEI NAUFRAGHI DELL'ITALIA - MILLE CHILOMETRI SULLA BANCHISA - Editore Libreria d'Italia, Milano 1929" contains a detailed description of the rescue expeditions made by Albertini and Matteoda. The following details are not correct / complete:
Albertini and Matteoda were not alpine students. They were both engineer graduate, member of "SUCAI" the academic section of "CAI Club Alpino Italiano". Both were expert and well known italian alpinist.
The dog sledge team was not led by norvegian trappers. The expedion leader was Gianni Albertini who received the mission orders by lieutenat commander Baldizzone aboard of the whaler "Braganza".
The trappers Nois and Tandberg were the the artic guides of the expedition. They supported partly Albertini and Matteoda because the last expedition leg, from Cape Brumm to Cape Leigh Smith, was completed by Albertini and Matteoda only, against the opinion of the norvegian guides who decided to stop, waiting for them at Cape Brumm
The expedition was the last of three expeditions led by Gianni Albertini along the north and north-east coast of Svalbard, with a total lenght of more than a thousand kilometers.
