My condolences for his family. It's a huge loss for MSX community.

I was able to find his work on this link:


I didn't know that existed a z380 board for MSX made by this person.

Leonardo's devices really kicked me back on the MSX scene, after many years on emulation only.

Me too. I own MEGA-SCSI, great mass storage interface, but when Leonardo's SD/MMC interface was released I didn't hesitate and bought it. No cables and no big SCSI devices, it was amazing!

Very sad news, from time to time I contacted him, my condolences to his family.

My condolences.
It was part of all that new unofficial hardware that allowed the MSX to evolve beyond its original design.

Padial's devices permited me to come back to MSX system many years ago. Thanks mister Padial, your name will be always associated to MSX community.

My condolences. Padial was a pioneer developing quality MSX hardware in early days where it was quite difficult to produce. I will treasure his hardware developments I have the luck to own. Geniuses should never die... ¡gracias por todo maestro!

I'm very sorry for your loss. We lost a very respected community member, but you lost your father. May the legacy he left here, cast a smile of proudness on your face one day when you remember him.
All the best for you and your family.

My condolences from Finland too.
Leonardo will continue living in our memories and trough his work. I still use the excellent hardware that he build in the past, so his legacy continues to live with us and bring us joy although his own time here has now ended. I wish the very best for the rest of the family that obviously has now lost a great man. Leonardo left important mark to our community that will be remembered for a long time.
