Federico Guiglia meets and interviews Giuliano Turone, judge emeritus of the Court of Cassation and author of books on the most burning and disturbing events of criminals, terrorists and mafiosi who have plotted against Italy.
He indicted the then Mafia chief Luciano Liggio. He has dealt with enquiries that have made history, such as those on Michele Sindona, the murder of Giorgio Ambrosoli, and the P2 Lodge. He taught investigation techniques at the Catholic University of Milan. Giuliano Turone, judge emeritus of the Court of Cassation and author of books on the most burning and disturbing events of criminals, terrorists and mafiosi who have plotted against Italy, comes to Merano for a meeting and interview with Federico Guiglia as part of the monthly cycle of special events promoted by the Italian-German Academy of Studies. In the face-to-face meeting, the magistrate will recount what he has reconstructed in his latest and well-documented book, recently published: “Italia occulta” (Chiarelettere).
Mysteries and conspiracies, punished and unpunished crimes, traitors and heroes of the institutions: everything will be discussed, starting from the ‘dramatic three-year period’ which, from the Moro case onwards, affected and bloodied our country from 1978 to 1980. It was precisely in that terrible period that Giorgio Ambrosoli was killed “who was a patriot, a definition that has fallen into disuse, but it is the one that should be used for him”, recalls Giuliano Turone. The loneliness and the example of a great Italian, like so many other brave magistrates and carabinieri, financiers and policemen who, with their sacrifice, contributed to guaranteeing the freedom and dignity of the Republic, long threatened by dark forces and wounded by murky events that the new generations today have a duty to know so as not to forget.
