The Legal Death

Barbieri, Giotto
Boston, Massachusetts, 1920. Two Italians, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, were sentenced to death, the only crime they were guilty of was of being anarchists. The whole world stood up, the people crowded into the town squares, not just the lives of two men were at stake but also the beliefs which they represented. Millions of voices in many languages were raised in protest. They sought justice for Sacco and Vanzetti, but nothing could save their lives. In August 23rd, 1927 Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were executed by electric chair, becoming martyrs and icons of freedom. Almost fifty years later, in 1971, the Italian director Giuliano Montaldo made a film about their unbelievable story. “Sacco e Vanzetti” immediately became a manifesto against intolerance, injustice and the death penalty. It was a huge international success.
