I am looking to buy one of Ugo Grassi's remanufactured Elmo GS1200 Xenon lamps.

Unfortunately I have had no luck contacting him as I believe he has left the hobby and all the old contacts for him are now obsolete.

If by chance anyone on here knows him i would be greatfull if they could pass this message on to him.

Mark, you might want to try Bill Parsons as I believe he used the lamp Ugo Grassi was having made, and helped to verify it was as good and even better than the original Toshiba lamp. I know he sang the praise of the lamp, and may have a spare lamp he could sell you.

Mark, I've never met Ugo, and I don't read about it anymore on the Italian forums, maybe he really abandoned the hobby.
But I knew that Maurizio Di Cintio, who is on this forum, knew him (on internet or in person), maybe he can help you get in touch with him.

Do you guys realize that we are dealing with the same person here:

https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ugo_Grassi

(Google translator: in English)

This is Ugo's profile in 8mmforum

Both location in the above links show Avellino, so must be the same person. He is a senator now...so he might not leave the hobby but is just busy with his current position.

I have just in touched with him and he is confirming that as a Senator (at national level) is not an easy job. For those who want to see in the parliament here is his latest speech: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0SEYudRcQg&feature=youtu.be&app=desktop

Mark, I have emailed you an email that I have for Ugo. Even if he is not active in super 8 he undoubtedly still has his equipment and lamps.

Since Luigi mentioned me, I must say I am not in the position to give any info regarding Senator Grassi.

I suggest Mark follow advice from other forum members to fulfill his needs. Regards.
