Born on 4 December 1890 in Pizza, Italy.
Divisional commander when Italy capitulated in 1943. The division was engaged and captured by the German 1st Mountain (Gebirgs) division. General Chiminello and 58 other Italian officers were shot by an execution commando of Gebirgs-Jaeger Battalion 54 on 3 October 1943.
Note: There seems to be several variations of general Chiminello surname in use on the internet which are probably typos: Chiminelli and Chiminiello, I'll add a new one Ernst Kimello from German document.
