Resistance, La Russa: “Sacrifice Salvo D’Acquisto among the most glorious acts”

The president of the Senate told ‘Corriere della Sera’: “I won’t talk about historical facts anymore, a surprise on April 25”

“Enough, I’m tired. From now on I won’t talk about historical facts anymore, only current events, and I expect that I will be judged on what I do and say on current issues, not on the past which, if anything, I will talk about with historians and not with journalists. So don’t ask me any more questions about these things because I won’t answer”. This was stated by the president of the Senate, Ignazio La Russa, in an interview with ‘Corriere della Sera’, after the controversy aroused by his words on the attack in via Rasella.

“My intention was precisely to extinguish the absurd controversy that had arisen over Meloni’s words” regarding the retaliation of the Fosse Ardeatine, “not to stoke it. Because if I had wanted to on via Rasella I would have said much more… Which indeed there are states of far more glorious acts of the Resistance, such as the sacrifice of Salvo D’Acquisto, who gave himself up to the Nazis without having done anything just to save the lives of innocent citizens.And I could have remembered that in via Rasella it was not a fire face to face with the Nazis: it was a battalion that was returning to the barracks hit with a bomb, and two innocent Italian passers-by also died… Yet I didn’t say these things, precisely because I didn’t want problems to arise, I wanted close them. As I know the story, I would mention other glorious acts…”.

And on the forthcoming celebrations on April 25, La Russa announces: “I said I’ve been there in the past but now I won’t say anything anymore. You will know what I will do on April 22, 23, not before. It will be a surprise…”.
