I live in fifth floor of a small apartment in Paris Latin section in 1927 spring.... A motion of save two Italian workers was started in Paris, they are N.Sacco and B.Vanzetti, they was brought a false charge into theft and murderer and had been put in a jail of criminal awaiting for execution in Boston of America for 6 years. I often pass the streets pasted posters of speech meeting, demurral meeting for save them. I read Vanzetti's "Autobiography" who is one of so-called "prisoners", there is this word in it:" I hope that every family have house, every mouth have bread, every heart will get education, everyone's brightness will get a opportunity to development." I am very excite. Vanzetti said the word in my heart....

About the director (Giuliano Montaldo)

the director (Giuliano Montaldo)

Giuliano Montaldo (born February 22, 1930 in Genoa) is an Italian film director.

While he was still a young student, Montaldo was recruited by the director Carlo Lizzani for the role of leading actor in the film Achtung! Banditi! (1951). Following this experience he began an apprenticeship as an assistant director of Lizzani and Gillo Pontecorvo.

In 1960 he made his debut as a director with Tiro al piccione, a film about the partisan resistance, which entered for a competition in Venice Film Festival in 1961. In 1965 he wrote and directed Una bella grinta, a cynical representation of the economic boom of Italy, winning the Special Prize of the Jury at Berlin Film Festival. He then directed the production Grand Slam (1967) which starred an international cast including Edward G. Robinson, Klaus Kinski, and Janet Leigh. His cinema career continued with Gott mit uns (1969), and Sacco and Vanzetti (1971), a film about the abuses of the military, judicial and religious power.

In 1982 he directed the colossal television miniseries Marco Polo, which won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Miniseries.(See here)

Introduction of The trial of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti


(Wikipedia)Ferdinando Nicola Sacco (April 22, 1891 – August 23, 1927) and Bartolomeo Vanzetti (June 11, 1888 – August 23, 1927) were two Italian-born American laborers and anarchists, who were tried, convicted and executed via electrocution on August 23, 1927 in Massachusetts for the 1920 armed robbery and murder of two pay-clerks in South Braintree, Massachusetts.

Their controversial trial attracted enormous international attention, with critics accusing the prosecution and presiding Judge Webster Thayer of improper conduct, and of allowing anti-Italian, anti-immigrant, and anti-anarchist sentiment to prejudice the jury. Prominent Americans such as Felix Frankfurter and Upton Sinclair publicly sided with citizen-led Sacco and Vanzetti committees in an ultimately unsuccessful opposition to the verdict. Sacco's and Vanzetti's execution elicited mass-protests in New York, London, Amsterdam and Tokyo, worker walk-outs across South America, and riots in Paris, Geneva, Germany and Johannesburg.

Sacco and Vanzetti's actual guilt remains a source of controversy. Significant post-trial evidence emerged suggesting innocence in addition to doubts about the fairness of their murder trial. These include modern ballistics tests on the alleged murder weapon, revelations of mishandled evidence, recanted testimony, a confession to the murder by a known bank robber, and statements by multiple individuals involved in the case.(More see here or here)


It was a bold and outrageous pair of murders. Three o'clock in the afternoon — in broad daylight — two armed men shot and killed a paymaster and his guard. Seven shots in all were fired. The killers picked up the two boxes containing almost $16,000, leaped into a car containing several other men, a car that had pulled up with precise timing, and sped away. The whole audacious enterprise had taken less than a minute.

"This is what I say: I would not wish to a dog or to a snake, to the most low or misfortunate creature of the earth — I would not wish to any of them what I have had to suffer for things that I am not guilty of. But my conviction is that I have suffered for things that I am guilty of. I am suffering because I am a radical and indeed I am a radical; I have suffered because I was an Italian, and indeed I am an Italian; I have suffered more for my family and for my beloved than for myself; but I am so convinced to be right that if you could execute me two times, and if I could be reborn two other times, I would live again to do what I have done already.


The trial of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti for the Braintree, Massachusetts payroll robbery and murders is the most politically charged murder case in the history of American jurisprudence. Even more than the conviction of atom bomb spies Ethel and Julius Rosenberg — for whose guilt a considerable amount of evidence exists — Sacco and Vanzetti were believed to be victims of their political beliefs.

What's all this fuss they're making about them guys?
Darned if some people ain't kickin' because they got
What was comin' to 'em;
Sayin', be Jesus,
It's cause they're reds.
That's bad enough,
But that ain't all —
Not by a damn sight.
Why, man alive,
They're only a couple o' God damn dagoes!...
Now me: I'm an American, I am ...
Send 'em up, say I,
Show 'em that our courts is American.
We don't get our law from Italy.
We don't care whether they done it or not.
To hell with 'em!
They're dagoes.

—Jim Seymour, 1921

Sacco and Vanzetti print by Ben Shahn

Whatever the truth of their guilt or innocence, no other crime story of our century has spawned so many poems, plays, novels, and passionate works of history. No other convicted robbers and murderers have received favorable accounts in the Dictionary of American Biography. No other case has defined an era of American history — its culture, causes, politics, paranoia, divided loyalties, fervent patriotism — than the trial and fate of these two immigrant Italians.

While memories of the details of this particular case are fading, the Sacco-Vanzetti case remains in its broad outline the prime example of defendants tried not for what they did, but for whom they were: poor, passionate radicals, in an era in which the United States lived in a state of fear. It was the era of "The Red Scare."(See here and here)
