Perché e chi lo voleva morto.
Aldo Moro was an Italian politician and statesman who served as the Prime Minister of Italy from 1963 to 1968 and again from 1974 to 1976. On March 16, 1978, he was kidnapped by a left-wing terrorist group known as the Red Brigades while on his way to the Parliament in Rome.
The Red Brigades demanded the release of several of their members who were being held in Italian prisons in exchange for Moro's release. However, the Italian government, led by then-Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti, refused to negotiate with the terrorists.
Moro was held captive for 55 days, during which time he wrote several letters to his family and political colleagues, pleading for their help in securing his release. Despite appeals from the Pope and other prominent figures, the Italian government refused to give in to the kidnappers' demands.
On May 9, 1978, Moro's body was found in the trunk of a car in the center of Rome. He had been shot multiple times. The Red Brigades claimed responsibility for his murder.
The kidnapping and murder of Aldo Moro shook Italy to its core and sparked a national crisis. It also led to a crackdown on left-wing terrorist groups and the passing of new anti-terrorism legislation in Italy.
