On the occasion of the day in memory of the victims of terrorism, and the anniversary of the discovery of the body of Aldo Moro, which took place on 9 May 1978, Rai Storia remembers the statesman killed by the Red Brigades with the special “Aldo Moro, memories of a professor”, on air tomorrow at 11.10 pm on Rai Storia for “Italiani”, with an introduction by Paolo Mieli. On the morning of March 16, 1978, the then president of the Christian Democrats, Aldo Moro, was kidnapped in via Mario Fani, in Rome, by a commando from the Red Brigades. That same day, his jailers write the first communiqué listing the statesman’s political responsibilities, announcing the start of a trial against him. Under the pressure of the interrogation, Moro relives thirty years of his political career, from a painful perspective, but which allows him, at the same time, to rearrange his experience and to analyze it in a different light, as he noted in his memoir : “I must say that, under the pressure of various stimuli and above all of a reflection that attracted each one to himself, the often tumultuous events of political and social life resumed their rhythm, their order and appeared more intelligible. The result was a disquiet that was difficult to appease and the thrust of a global and serene re-examination of one’s own experience, as well as human, social and political, came forward. Moro’s memorial allows you to retrace the most significant moments of his political career, from the Constitutional Charter to the historic compromise. Through the words of the deceased statesman it is possible to reconstruct the most difficult and painful pages in the history of the Italian Republic: the birth of the centre-left, the crisis of the Tambroni government, the maneuvers of the Sifar of 1964, the Sixty-eight, the massacre in Piazza Fontana, the strategy of tension, up to the agreement with the PCI for the formation of a government of national unity led by Andreotti. The result is an unusual portrait of the Christian Democrat statesman, who places his dimension as a university professor and constitutionalist at the center of his experience as a politician.
