Good Morning, Night | 2005
The kidnapping and killing of Aldo Moro, Italy's former prime minister and head of the Christian Democrat party, was a cataclysmic event no Italian can forget. Moro was taken hostage by Red Brigade members in March 1978 and almost two months elapsed while negotiations were pursued in vain. His bullet-riddled body was found on the May 9th after a phone call alerted the authorities. After such a shocking crime had been committed, Italy teetered on the edge of political chaos.
