    Is this sentence correct:

    I would never believe that such an all round man with so many talents developed to such perfection lived in Milan, had I not known him.

    It's awkward.

    Had I not known him, I would never have believed that such an all round man with so many talents developed to such perfection [had] lived in Milan.

    If I didn't know him,
    I would never believe that such an all round man with so many talents developed to such perfection lived in Milan.
