****I am sad to announce the passing of my brother, Anthony Grillo on October 21st, 2004. Please keep visiting, being patient with the hopeful continuation of his website. Sincerely, Vivian Grillo****


I know of two book written about the Andrea Doria, Collision Course by Alvin Moscow and Saved by William Hoffer, each contain stories by the survivors. I am sure not all of the stories have been told. If you have a story and would like it to be told send it to me and I'll post it here.

I have been able to obtain hardcover editions of both books from Amazon.com out of print book service. It took nearly 6 months to obtain both books. www.amazon.com
