Tomato and Cipollino on a Russian stamp [1]

a private chess engine by Giancarlo Delli Colli in dependence on the fictional character from Gianni Rodari's eponymous Tale of Cipollino also known under its 1957 renamed title The Adventures of the Little Onion [2], who fights the unjust treatment of his fellow vegetable townfolk by the fruit royalty. Cipollino played the CIPS 2007 with 5½/6, with hindsight zeroed on the G 6 tournament page. Concerning engine originality of Olivier Deville's ChessWar tournaments, Cipollino was suspected as Fruit derivative by Christopher Conkie [3], and according to Olivier Deville first forfeited and later reinstated after Giancarlo Delli Colli provided Christopher Conkie with some source code for examination, and nothing suspicious has been found [4] [5] [6].
