His crossing is now a memorial swim called the Traversata del Lago Maggiore (or the Crossing of Lake Maggiore, also called the III° Traversata di nuoto Intra–Laveno-Cerro). It is a 3-race event including a 400m children's race, a 2.5 km swim and a 4 km open water swimming competition held in July 2013 from Intra to Laveno-Cerro in Italy.
