(ANSA) - ROME, FEB 1 - Tito Stagno, the Italian State broadcaster RAI reporter whose commentary on the 1969 NASA moon landings became legendary, has died at the age of 92, his family said Tuesday.
    "It's touched down! It has touched the moon's surface in this moment", said Stagno when the lunar module carrying Neal Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin hit the lunar surface on July 20, 1969.
