45 years ago, Italy was shocked by the discovery of the body of MP and former Prime Minister Aldo Moro, who had been kidnapped several weeks before by the Red Brigades, an extreme left terrorist group. That same day, Communist militant and anti-mafia activist Peppino Impastato was killed in Cinisi, Sicily; his assassins tried to make it look like an involuntary suicide while placing a bomb on the railways, so that Impastato could be seen as a terrorist. Because of the tragic discovery of Aldo Moro, Impastato's name was forgotten for many years; now they are both celebrated on the 9th May as two victims of terrorism and organised crime.
Our ambassadors Anna Batzeli, Daria Mikhaylova, and Pamela Rubio have collected a series of documents related to Aldo Moro and Peppino Impastato:
