Silvia Pinelli, daughter of Licia Rognini and Giuseppe Pinelli, will also attend the meeting. This meeting is part of ‘Le Marche tra le righe”, the festival edited by Libreria Iobook and dedicated to authors and books of our region. The aim of the festival is that of discovering a little more of ourselves, our identity, our memory, our places thanks to the narrative of local writers.
The narration of these authors will guide us to the discovery of elements of difficult perception, but still present in the narrative. Together, we’ll be trusting literature in the aim of describing the human spirit, our land, nature around us, but also the traditions, the costumes and the personality of a such multifaceted region like ours.
This event has been organized in partnership with “Associazione di Storia Contemporanea”, funded on 13 January 2011 by Marco Severini, professor of “Contemporary History of Italy” in University of Macerata, who is currently at the head of it. There are events in history that have been waiting for truth and justice for so long. One of them is at the very heart of the latest book written by Marco Severini.
The subject is the story of Giuseppe Pinelli, the anarchist railwayman fallen from the 4th floor of Questura di Milano in the night between 15 and 16 December 1969. Pinelli’s widow consented to the historian to have an exclusive interview from which the book “Licia. Storia della prima italiana che ha denunciato un questore” (the Italian title) derives.
As it is known, Pinelli’s death is linked to the bomb which was detonated in Piazza Fontana on 12 December 1969 and, generally, to a situation of great trouble for the democratic institutions. What is original of the book is the way the story’s crucial moments (the militant’s death, the lies told by the members of the State, the denounce towards the commissioner for telling and repeating the false, the trials ended with no condemnation)
are reconstructed and fathomed with through the eyes of a woman, born in our region, who has been fighting for long, together with her daughters, in order to know the true reason why his husband died. This fight, which turns a solitary one and was carried on by Licia’s two daughters (Claudia and Silvia), got healed by the seek for a justice which is claimed by the most part of Italian citizens.
