Alessandro Ambrogio Anzani
Birth: Dec. 5, 1877
Lombardia, Italy
Death: Jul. 24, 1956
Basse-Normandie, France

Inventor. He was an Italian cyclist and motorcycle builder who invented the first lightweight engine for practical use in airplanes. His three-cylinder, air-cooled engine was used by aviator Louis Blériot in the first successful flight across the English Channel in 1909. He spent the majority of his life in France, but retained his Italian citizenship out of loyalty to his own country. The 1920s Italian car "Anzani" takes its name from the company that he founded. (bio by: amy7252)
