The Years of Lead, as the period of civil unrest during the late 60's and 70's were called in Italy, was a time of corruption and protest. Unfortunately many people were killed in a struggle that almost crossed the line into an ideological civil war. Neither extreme, Communists or Fascists, were allowed to run for government regardless of the ardent supporters on each side, this naturally led to discontent and crime.

Mario Calabresi tries to bring the humanity and the emotion of growing up as the son of one of the first victims of this attrocity, but undoubtedly he is extremely biased against the Red Brigades who killed his father. He repeatedly accuses them of all the violence during these years and only brushes over mentions of the Fascist and Police brutalities committed around the same time. While his account is heartfelt, I couldn't help but feel as if his mother's lesson of love for others could never be erased from his suconscious, and not matter how hard he tries he cannot write about his own life without being accusatory.
Yes the Red Brigades did kill many innocent people, but you cannot ignore the Fascist or Police crimes, and you need to be willing to forgive people who have recognized their errors.

He claims his new movement will in fact strengthen the centre-Left.
But analysts suspect he will withdraw his support at some point in the future in order to mount a bid for power. T he schism weakens the position of Nicola Zingaretti, the beleaguered head of the Democratic Party.
