Rome, Italy - 16 March 1978 The day Aldo Moro was kidnapped: the escort men killed by Red Brigades. 

"Affaire" Moro

March / May 1978 - Rome, Italy

"When Gianni Giansanti turned into via Michelangelo Caetani that day - 9 May 1978 - he had no idea what was in store. He was 22 years old, and full of the fire and enthu - siasm of a young man setting out on his professional path. (...) He climbed up to a balcony from which he had a bird's eye view of a red Renault 4 around which police officers were teeming; explosives experts were about to blow off the locks of the car door. Camera at the ready, when the boot flew open, Giansanti started shooting. "At a time like that you don't really feel anything, you just cope with the technical pro - blems. All I could think of was that I had to guard my photos with my life, and get them to the AP agency. I had an incre - dible scoop on my hands".
