Enrico Deaglio: “Reporting Italy”

February 16, 2011 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm  |  College 8, Room 240


Full of mysteries, theatrical effects, unexpected violence and unexpected compromises, recent Italian history is probably difficult to understand, but surely is not boring. It was 32 years ago when Aldo Moro, the most prominent Italian politician, was killed by the Red Brigades in the center of Rome, after a kidnapping that lasted 55 days. Thirty two years later, if you look for the truth behind that kidnapping/homicide, you won’t find it: that story is suspended, forgotten… Italy is really a country you wouldn’t have imagined.

Enrico Deaglio is a writer who has worked in journalism, television, and publishing for over 30 years. In 1996 he founded the political weekly Diario that he directed until 2008. He has written numerous books including La banalità del bene, Storia di Giorgio Perlasca and Raccolto Rosso. He co-created several investigative films: Quando c’era Silvio (2006), Uccidete la democrazia (2006), Gli imbroglioni (2007), and Fare un golpe e farla franca (2008). His most recent book is Patria (2010), covering Italian politics from 1978-2010.
