  Silvio Resnati

Silvio Resnati segue nella tomba, a pochi giorni di distanza, il suo fratello di gloria Emilio Pensuti.
Era popolarissimo come Pensuti, ma negli ultimi tempi aveva accresciuto la sua popolaritÓ in America, dove si trovava dall'agosto 1917 e dove le sue imprese furono ammirate anche da Wilson.
Nato nel 1883 a Cornate d'Adda, fu nel 2░ Granatieri di Sardegna e cadde ferito al Sabotino; pass˛ in aviazione e fu subito tra i primissimi. Aveva al suo attivo molti records, ma principalmente si era reso famoso per il trasporto di molti passeggeri, fino a 25, nel triplano. E' caduto durante un volo sul campo di Hampstead e gli sono stati tributati solenni funerali.
