On the photo is the "young" Massimo La Rosa more than 30 years ago (London, 1978).

The article is so interesting and indeed very instructive. I never knew this subtle helpmate theme all these days!

Thanks Massimo for this nice article. I think originally Leibovici intended the interference to be on both black and white pieces, so perhaps he did not have helpmates as his aim. Milan in his book specified interference by pinned piece moving along the pinline. So some of the selections may not qualify !

But I am OK if just interference by black pinned piece is shown! The problems in the collection are all interesting.

Thank you. I agree with you. Originally this intereference was intended by a pinned piece moving along the pin line, as Milan said. I am still studying this intereference and many problems are added daily. Thank you.

Thank you very much Rodolfo for your comment. Yes, it is well known that Guidelli developed new ideas that, unfortunately, didn't get his name. I already heard about Guidelli Interference but today we call it as Leibovici Interference. Please see Sinfonie Scacchistiche n.1 page 5.

Article is missing one of the most complex version of the theme.
T. Garai, A. Garofalo, R. Riva -Probleemblad 1988, 1.Preis
6b1/ps6/7R/pk2b2R/p2q4/P2rp3/3S4/2r1sB1K (6+12)
h#2 b)Sd2->e4
a) 1.Qc5, Bh3 2.Bd4, Bd7#
b) 1.Qc4, Rh2 2.Rd4, Rb2#
It is one of the very few helpmates where the Umnov is not accidental, but have a strategic content. Please, notice that the Qd4 can not be placed on some other square because of the cooks.
