1922 Duel Aurelio Greco vs Candido Sassone

Duel between Aurelio Greco and Candido Sassone on October 7, 1922. The duel starts at about 5 minutes into the film with Sassone on the left and Greco on the right.

Purportedly the argument was about a difference of opinion regarding fencing theory and it was dubbed ‘The duel of the Century.’ On the sixth assault Sassone is slightly wounded in the right forearm and thus defeated.  While this ended the duel, the parties were not reconciled.

In attendance were none other than Maestro Pessina, Maestro Agesilao Greco and Maestro Ammannato.
