Prospero Gallinari, a Red Brigades terrorist with at least three murders to his credit and who was among the jailers of former Italian prime minister Aldo Moro, kidnapped and subsequently murdered in 1978, died on January 14th at the age of 1962 and frankly I couldn't care less. However, close to 1000 other people apparently did care. They showed up for his funeral and burial (in a casket covered by a red flag bearing the communist hammer and sickle) in the small cemetery of Coviolo near Reggio Emilia and shouted slogans and sang militant songs.

Several of the participants were other former Red Brigades members, people who here are termed "irriducibili", the unrepentant ones, and most of whom, thanks to the vagaries of Italian justice, are no longer in jail despite the hundreds of murders and woundings for which they, along with other terrorist groups, leftwing like the Red Brigades, or rightwing, were responsible during the so-called "anni di piombo", the years of lead, that is bullets. Who the others might be I don't know but think is very worrisome that there should be so many people in Italy today who either have forgotten the damage the terrorists did to this country or else think they were on the right track. Golly.
