The twentieth anniversary is dedicated to the centenary of the birth of Salvo D’Acquisto. The president recalled the deputy brigadier who sacrificed his life for others. On the 5 floors of the Museum - in full compliance with the rules for Covid - films, unpublished and testimonies were screened.
This event, says President Capasso, wants to pay homage to a commendable figure who honors the Carabinieri and Italy.
On this occasion, President Capasso announced that in the coming months the entire building of the Museum will be dedicated to "The Carabinieri, faithful over the centuries".
On 23 September 1943 - the videos of the Museum announce - the deputy brigadier Salvo D’Acquisto, awarded the gold medal for military valor for memory, sacrificed his life to save that of 22 innocent people.
The previous day - 77 years ago - the explosion of some crates of ammunition killed a German soldier and wounded two. The crates were deposited in an abandoned barracks of the Guardia Di Finanza, in the Torre di Palidoro area and not far from Torrimpietra, where the Carabinieri station commanded by Salvo D’Acquisto stood.
Although it had been an accident, the event was considered by the German militias to be an unscrupulous attack organized by the Italians. D'Acquisto tried to persuade them that it was an accident but the Nazi officer did not give weight to his explanations.
He ordered to round up 22 people at random among the houses of the small town in the Roman province and had them brought near the Tower of Palidoro.
They were all questioned briefly but their version was not heard. Salvo D’Acquisto, given the bad turn taken by events, decided to turn to a Nazi officer and offered his life in exchange for the release of the 22 hostages, already forced to dig their own grave.
It was 5.15pm when Feldwevel Hansel Feiten gave the fatal order. Before dying under German bullets, D'Acquisto shouted "Long live Italy!"
Today, 77 years after his heroic deed and on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth, the Carabinieri commemorated his sacrifice.
In Naples, the interregional commander "Ogaden" general of the army corps Adolfo Fischione, together with the commander of the carabinieri legion Stefanizzi and other officers of the weapon paid homage to the tomb of Salvo D'Acquisto in the Basilica of Santa Chiara and then deposited a laurel wreath at the monument in Piazza Salvo D'Acquisto, in the presence of the prefect Valentini
