Rome, 1977 May 12

In 1977 a wave of terrorism produced 2,128 attacks on groups such as law enforcements, lawyers, industrialists, political leaders and journalists. Over 30 people were wounded by gunfire, eleven were killed.

The violence that spread throughout the country seemed unstoppable. In Rome, the Radicals organized an illegal demonstration to celebrate the anniversary of the introduction of divorce in this Catholic country. A violent confrontation between police and “Autonomia” activists ensued. At the end of the day a young student girl, Giorgiana Masi, died by a pistol-shot.
Actually we still don't know who shot her.
I saw both policemen and students shooting.
I was only 20 years old when I took these pictures.

Gli anni di piombo......
frammenti della nostra storia..........
forse troppo piccolo per capirli...
e sapere veramente cosa stesse succedendo....
da grande mi accorgo .......
che è stato un periodo buio......
del nostro passato......
la lotta armata.....
per un ideale.......
troppi intrighi......
e vittime innocenti....
sia su un fronte che dall'altro....
sembrano tempi lontanissimi......
ma queste tue immagini sono eccezzionali.......
e riportano indietro la memoria......
facendo ricordare....... e pensare........
Ottima tutta la serie.......

Hard job, damngerous job, hard life and great picture....

Atle Garmann, 29.10.2006 at 16:50h

Yes, this must have been a hard job. Not only the risk of getting hurt your self, but also to see other humans get hurt and killed must have been hard. It is a good picture and an excellent series.
Greetings Atle.
