Aldo Moro and the day of Remembrance

Today, Italy celebrates the “Day of Remembrance” dedicated to the victims of terrorism.
The date symbolically chosen to remember these people coincides with the death of the Aldo Moro, killed after 55 days of captivity on May 9, 1978.
A long trail of blood that has crossed our history for over 40 years.
Hundreds of members of the police force, magistrates, journalists, political figures and ordinary citizens have died as a result of the subversive madness of ferocious murderers.
The Police paid a very high price with more than 60 victims and many survivors who have carried for the rest of their lives the physical and psychological signs of the “Attack on the heart of the State”.
It is an anniversary that the Italian Republic established with the law May 4, 2007 n. 56.
The following year, on May 9, 2008, on the occasion of the first anniversary, the President of the Italian Republic Giorgio Napolitano delivered a strong speech, condemning political violence.
He stated, “What is most important is to avert any risk of removal of such a shocking experience lived by the country, in order to prevent any danger of reproduction of those phenomena that have cost democracy and Italians so much.”
This date deliberately coincides with the discovery of the body of Aldo Moro, killed by the Red Brigades on May 9, 1978, one of Italy’s most influential politicians.
Aldo Moro was born in Maglie, in the province of Lecce, on September 23, 1916.
After completing his studies in Law, he began his career as a professor at the University of Bari.
At the same time he cultivated his political passion and founded the Democrazia Cristiana political party.
A career that led him to hold various roles in the government, including that of Prime Minister for three times.
His political career was abruptly interrupted on March 16, 1978 when he was kidnapped by the Red Brigades. His kidnapping lasted 55 days.
It was on 9 May 1978 when Moro’s body was found in the trunk of a Renault 4 in Via Caetani in Rome: a death with contours still unclear, a dark page in our history.
Not to forget…
