On March 16, 1978, on Via Fani, a street in Rome, a unit of the militant Communist organisation known as the Red Brigades blocked the two-car convoy transporting Moro and kidnapped him, murdering in cold blood his five bodyguards.
On the day of his kidnapping, Moro was on his way to a session of the House of Representatives, where a discussion was to take place regarding a vote of confidence for a new government led by Giulio Andreotti (DC) that would have, for the first time, the support of the Communist Party.
In the following days, trade unions called for a general strike, while security forces made hundreds of raids in Rome, Milan, Turin and other cities searching for Moro's location.
Held for two months, he was allowed to send letters to his family and politicians.
The government refused to negotiate, despite demands by family, friends and Pope Paul VI.
During the investigation of Moro's kidnapping, General Carlo Alberto Dalla Chiesa reportedly responded to a member of the security services who suggested torturing a suspected brigatista, "Italy can survive the loss of Aldo Moro. It would not survive the introduction of torture."
This 2003 film directed by Marco Bellocchio portrays the kidnapping largely from the perspective of Chiara, a young female member of the kidnappers.
Passionate about a revolutionary utopia, however, her suspicions and doubts grow and she questions her commitment and acts both emotionally and ideologically.
It would be much better and more interesting if it included the perspective of General Carlo Chiesa.
