Exposure of Operation Gladio

In 1984 judge Felice Casson reopened the case of a car bomb in Peteano in 1972 and uncovered a series of anomalies in the original investigation. He showed that although it had been attributed to the communist Red Brigades, in was in fact the work of a right wing organization called Ordine Nuovo, a member of which Vincenzo Vinciguerra was arrested and charged and confessed to planting the bomb.

Casson's investigation also revealed that the Peteano bombing was only one of a long series of bombings begun at Christmas 1969, the most well-known of which, on the Piazza Fontane in Milan, killed 16 and injured 80. The bombing campaign culminated on 2 August 1980 with a massive bomb in the waiting room of Bologna railway station which killed 85 and injured 200.
