Sir Aldo Castellani, the British trained doctor who helped Mussolini conquer Ethiopia



Without Aldo Castellani, a British trained specialist in tropical diseases, the Italian army would have paid a high price to conquer Ethiopia in 1936. At the beginning of the campaign – on the 3rd of October 1935 – the casualties due to typhus and malaria were set at about 22.000 but at the end only 600 had died. Dr. Castellani’s name and contribution are forgotten in modern Italy.
