****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****


There were 572 crew members on the Andrea Doria for the last voyage and the crew consisted of officers, sailors and support staff. The officers and sailors were responsible for the operation of the ship. The support staff consisted of waiters, cooks, cabin boys, chamber maids, and other personnel that would be considered the staff of a hotel. The Andrea Doria, after all, was a floating hotel and they were responsible for the comfort of the passengers.

The following list of crew members is considered complete and official. This was provided by Captain Raffaele Minotauro, Master of the Cristoforo Colombo. Captain Minotauro's father was a waiter on the Andrea Doria and he was kind enough to provide me with a copy of the "Ruolino Equipaggio, Viaggio No. 51". 

A mystery has presented itself. A list of crewmembers rescued by the U.S.S. Edward H. Allen was recently given to me by Mr. Werner O. Grabner who was on board the Allen. The list has 2 additional crewmen not listed in the official list. The crewmen are: Giordano Franciosi (stevedore) and Antonio Manilo (deck boy). If anybody out there has any information please contact me.
