RED BRIGADES (BR): Marxist-Leninist

terrorist group founded in 1970.

Kidnapped DC president Aldo Moro

in 1978, killed him after 55 days.

Terrorists always maintained

they acted independently,

but search for Moro

perhaps influenced by P2 lodge.

CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS (DC): Christian

ethics party founded by De Gasperi.

Organized in factions, governed Italy

from 1946 to early '90s, when,

along with other parties, it was

swept away by "Bribesville" scandal.

Main leaders:
Aldo Moro,

Amintore Fanfani, Giulio Andreotti.

P2 LODGE:

Anti-Communist Masonic secret

society founded during Cold War.

Run by Licio Gelli,

Politicians, reporters, businessmen,

military, secret service personnel.

Objective was to install

an authoritarian government.

Silvio Berlusconi was also member.

ALDO MORO:
Statesman,

As hostage, wrote hundreds of letters

pressing for negotiations with BR.

Andreotti and Cossiga's hard-line

policy ruled out negotiations.

especially Andreotti.

"IF YOU CANNOT SPEAK WELL

OF SOMEONE,

DON'T SPEAK ABOUT THEM"

ROSA FALASCA ANDREOTTI,

MOTHER OF GIULIO ANDREOTTI

"You have six months left", said the

army doctor when I was called up.

Years later I looked him up:

I wanted him to see I was alive,

but he was dead.

It always went that way.

They'd predict my demise

and I'd survive.

They'd die instead.

On the other hand, I've suffered

splitting headaches all my life.

Now I'm using a Chinese remedy,

but I've tried everything.

In its day, the drug

Optalidon looked really promising.

I even sent a supply

to a journalist:
Mino Pecorelli.

He's dead too.

- What time did you wake up, Giulio?

- 4:
30.

The great La Pira would wake at 3:30.

He was a saint. I'm a sinner.

- How many times, Giulio?

- As of today, seven.

Seven times Premier,

twenty-five times minister.

I never had

such an illustrious parishioner.

We're all illustrious in God's eyes.

Montanelli said:

"De Gasperi and Andreotti

went to mass together,

everyone thought they did

the same thing but it wasn't so.

In church, De Gasperi talked to God.

Andreotti talked to the priest.

Priests vote.

God doesn't.

Mario, I want to confess.

Of course, Giulio.

Premier, don't slouch.

I'm comfortable like this.

Premier, storm clouds are gathering.

Fiorenzo, sit on the throne.

How's the Pope doing?

I was on TV yesterday.

There was talk of priests in trouble.

I quoted Pius XI.

Whenever they mentioned

a priest in trouble to him,

he always said the same five words.

- What?

- What is the lady's name?

- The Lad's in good form.

- Thank you for calling me "lad".

The usual nasty journalist pushed

the same old button:
