Praise

“They killed Mario Calabresi’s policeman father when he was only two years old, and growing up he found in this tragedy the force to write. In trying to understand his own grief, he comprehends the grief of an entire country.”—Roberto Saviano, author of Gomorrah

“With a remarkably beautiful translation into English by Michael F. Moore, Calabresi weaves back and forth between the 1970s and the present day, illustrating the lack of justice for Italy’s criminals and the falsehoods in the national consciousness surrounding the death of his father. To debunk the claims made by leftists that his father was guilty of a crime, Calabresi carefully and scientifically has many experts recreate the events of the death of Giusseppe Pinelli, leading to the solid conclusion that Luigi Calabresi is innocent of all wrongdoing…What I appreciate so much about this work is Calabresi’s ability to create such rich emotion while retaining his own values and morals.”—Stephen Robert Morse, Mother Jones

“Fair and deeply moving.”—Le Monde

“Mario Calabresi has written, for all the victims, a worthy book.”—Télérama

“Sincere without being vindictive, Mario Calabresi . . . struggles against ignorance and conformity.”—Nouvel Observateur
