The Rosselli Case

Among the most courageous figures of Italian antifascism, Carlo and Nello Rosselli co-founded Giustizia e Libertà. Carlo was among the first to grasp the importance of the Spanish Civil War as a means of organizing resistance to fascism across Europe. A fascist spy reported in Rome that ”the greatest danger comes from Rosselli, and, in my view, it is absolutely necessary that he be suppressed.” In the spring of 1937, he and his brother were murdered by fascist gunmen. Directed by Stella Savino and narrated by Alberto Rosselli.
