Quotes about Carlo Biotti edit

  • Poco dopo, il 15 dicembre 1969, sapete tutti cosa accadde, o forse meglio, ciò che accadde nessuno di noi lo ha mai veramente saputo, testimoni oculari esclusi. Pinelli cade da quella finestra del commissariato e si apre una delle mille pagine vergognose della giustizia italiana. Una pagina che contiene anche il racconto della storia dimenticata di Carlo Biotti. Una altro di quei romanzi che andrebbero riletti.
    • Shortly after, on December 15, 1969, you all know what happened, or perhaps better, what happened none of us has ever really known, except eyewitnesses. Pinelli falls from that police station window and one of the thousand shameful pages of Italian justice opens up. A page that also contains the story of the forgotten story of Carlo Biotti. Another one of those novels that should be re-read.
