Spare a thought for Claudio Silvestrin. Astragal gathers a storm has blown the roof off his recently completed Venice apartment. It happens. Lionel Brett had a similar mishap with some housing in Hatfield decades ago.

No sooner had it happened than his dad died, and he became Viscount Esher. Everybody forgot about the architect called Brett, and he never looked back.
