The return of the Red Brigade in Italy, after 11 years of silence from this terrorist organization, was a traumatic event for the entire Country, besides obviously for the families of the victims killed: the professors D’Antona and Biagi, and the police superintendent Petri. It was precisely from this death that the investigators gained the key for entering into the heart of the new RB, discovering that which appeared to be invisible and elusive, and deliver a number of significant blows to the renewed terrorism, even if the trial has not yet concluded. Narrating this story signifies trying to tell another piece of Italian history, without doubt extremely recent and therefore without the necessary detachment of a historian, but extremely deeply rooted in the ups and downs of Italian terrorism which have ancient roots, and therefore placeable within a wider context. The investigative approach which was adopted after a decade of absence of investigations into terrorism, is precisely one of the most significant aspects: they are investigations which differ from all the others, also carried out using traditional methods but with intelligence and psychological and strategic methods which are different, a challenge already won in the past by the State but which has re-presented itself suddenly and unexpectedly. This new challenge, launched by the RB in 1999 with the murder of Massimo D’Antona also seems to have been won, but there is always the danger that sooner or latter someone will re-present it: this is also why it is important to keep the memory alive.
