Alberto Peracchio

When he signed-on to the Titanic, on 6 April 1912, he gave his address as 4 Richmond Buildings, Dean Street, London. The Titanic was his first ship. He boarded the Titanic on 10 April.

His brother Sebastiano was also an assistant waiter in the à la carte restaurant.

Both men died in the sinking. Their bodies, if recovered, were never identified. In early editions of Corriere della Sera it was reported that Alberto Peracchio had been rescued.
