World Cup trophy maker has died

The creator of the World cup trophy has died today in his sleep at his home in Milan at 95 years of age.
FIFA desperately wanted to make a new trophy after Brazil became a permanent owner of the Jules Rimet prize in 1970, following their third success in the finals. From 7 different nations and after 53 proposals Silvio Gazzaniga's work was picked up.
He designed other international trophies as well.
