Giancarlo Delli Colli, († June 2017)
was an Italian software developer and CEO of Axios Italy, a software development company [1]. As computer chess programmer Giancarlo was author of the Fruit derivative Lion, Cipollino, and the in 2009 original chess engine Equinox. Lion, competing at the WCCC 2006 in Turin, was disqualified [2] in consideration of the unclear wording of a rule concerning the conditions for the participation to WCCC 2006, a rule that has been subsequently amended by the ICGA. Cipollino played the CIPS 2007 with 5½/6 [3] [4], with hindsight zeroed on the G 6 tournament page [5]. Giancarlo came back [6] as co-author of the then original [7] chess engine Equinox (together with Stefano Rocchi and Book author Harry Schnapp), which competed at the WCCC 2009 in Pamplona. Equinox has won the IOCSC 2011 beating Chiron - last years edition winner - at the end of an intense play-off match. At the IOCSC 2012, Equinox competed as "free" engine [8] and became runner up behind Vitruvius.

Giancarlo Delli Colli died in June 2017 after battling two years against pancreatic cancer [9]
