Contemporary Italian history has been marked by an extraordinary series of murders and political assassinations. The shooting of King Umberto in 1900 by an anarchist, the various attempts on the life of Mussolini, the killing of former prime minister Aldo Moro by the Red Brigades in 1978, and the shooting of the student Carlo Giuliani by a policeman during the G8 protests in Genoa in 2001 were all highly controversial events that provoked far-reaching reactions. The contributions to this book explore these and many other Italian true crime and political murder cases. They analyze them in their historical and cultural contexts and explore the films, fiction, theatre and art that they have inspired.
