Jose Alberto Scapafino

jose-alberto-scapafinoI searched the tango magazines for a photo since I don’t have one,  and I found this in El Tangauta.  He is another milonguero who has disappeared from the milongas.  I remember dancing with him in Italia Unita and Lo de Celia.  I have seconds of his dancing on video at Club Caribean where Laura Grinbank and Elisa Fardella ran their milonga Las Mireyas. 

Beto Ayala once told me that Jose Alberto was known as Pepino in the milongas.  He was short and plump, but how he danced to Troilo!
