The convergence of parallel theorized by Aldo Moro is released immediately after his death when, close to the Hall of the Queen of Montecitorio, and the two men that had fought for life, the Fascist and the Communist, every Friday, you appartavano on a bench and toiling, with the power of words and the reason, to save the democracy and the Republic, devastated by a wave of violence and terrorism. Were the former repubblichino Giorgio Almirante, and the anti-fascist Enrico Berlinguer. Forty-three years after the institutions are sound, the ideologies faded and the opposite sides of the spectrum confused in the broad understandings of government. But this does not prevent to seize as a good news — that evokes the distant memory — the interview took place on Saturday between the heir of Almirante and Msi, Giorgia Meloni, and the former dc Enrico Letta, who took the reins of the Pd. Only witness of the meetings of 1978, disappeared Antonio Tatò, it is Maximum Magliaro, already right arm of Almirante.
"There is a fund that makes all the difference — tells Magliaro —. Those meetings between Almirante and Berlinguer were illegal immigrants. Then we knew that only I, and Tatò, in addition to the wives of the two leaders. It was too dangerous to make the word". The two leaders met at the Chamber, in the late afternoon, when the parliamentarians had already returned home. You sat down on a sofa, secluded and spoke in a low voice, quietly. What to say exactly, no one knows: "I never had the courage to ask. I have regretted it as the worst of my sins."
You are told that discussion of political violence. "Yes, this is true — says Magliaro —. It was a terrible moment. Trying to figure out how to stem the violence that had all the colors and that it was protected and foraggiata by the secret services". A reaction crucial to revive the fortunes of a Country divided in half. On June 7, 1984, at a rally in Padua, Berlinguer, feels bad. The day of the funeral, it was incredible. Tells Magliaro: "That morning I went to take Almirante at home, in the via Quattro Fontane. We had breakfast with Enzo Erra, director of the Romadi Naples, who had interviewed. We went in the car with Mario, the driver. Arrived at the Tunnel, I thought that it turned to the right, to go in via della Scrofa, to the headquarters of the party. And instead nodded to him to go straight. I saw the glaring eyes of Mario in the mirror. We knew".
Two medieval knights
The machine heads to the piazza Venezia. "I thought: seeking the beautiful death. Now the linciano". Here the story is apologetic: "I saw in their eyes, that they said, he is the chief of the fascists. But then the crowd opened, almost as if it were the Red sea in front of Moses". At the door of the Botteghe Oscure we are waiting for you Nilde Iotti, Armando coveys cow coward cowardice cowardly and Giancarlo Pajetta. At the microphone director Luigi Magni, Almirante says: "I have Not come to get me to advertise, but to greet an honest man". It is true, says Magliaro: "He was always a gentleman. At that time I thought of two medieval knights that have fought up to the spasimo, now make the honor of the army". At the exit, the leader missino is aimed at Magliaro, relieved: "Phone Woman Assunta, tell her that everything went well." Time after, were Pajetta and Nilde Iotti to attend the funeral of Almirante.
's Difficult to think of the most important moments, after so much pain and so much blood. Too much politics is affected by sectarianism, hatred, or, vice versa, the coterie, and behavior. The meeting of these days between Read and Melons is a signal of mutual recognition is important, even if the times are very different. And one might doubt that the goal really is, as they say, "take care of the democracy is ill". Easier than there are to enter the maneuvers on the chairmanship of the Committee. The rest of the furor ideological and you are off and the two leaders now have little to do with those of that time: "Read it to me, it seems the heir of Berlinguer — says Magliaro —. And the Melons, with all due respect, he has seen the young girl to the end of the Msi".
There is little to regret those times. "I regret the ruling class. I remember when I took the coffee in the refreshment area with Francesco Forte. Or chats with Fernando Di Giulio, parent Pci to the Room. It was enough to hear about Nenni to understand what is politics".
