It is the morning of 17 May 1972, and the gun aimed behind Commissioner Luigi Calabresi will always change Italian history. Soon our country will slide into one of its darkest periods, the so-called "years of lead", "The Night of the Republic". Those two pistol shots but they only changed the course of public events, but radically shook the life of many innocent. The history of Calabrese murder is also the story of those who stayed after the death of a commissioner who was also a husband and a father.

Mario Calabresi, today journalist of "Repubblica", tells the story and the stories of those who remained outside the memory of the years of lead, the existence of the "other" victims of terrorism, children and wives of those who died: C 'It is those who have no longer had the strength to start again, to endure public inattention, collective oblivion; And there are those who have never stopped fighting because the memory was respected and not to be swallowed by remorse. The history of the family of him intertwines so with that of many others (the daughter of Antonio Custra, of Luigi Marangoni or the son of Emilio Alessandrini) forced to suddenly face, alone, a private catastrophe, who must belong to all of us .
