Durante l. a. Prima Guerra Mondiale, sul Fronte occidentale i soldati francesi ricevono l'ordine di assaltare il "Formicaio", una roccaforte tedesca; l. a. mossa appare subito azzardata, perché diretta contro un presidio praticamente inespugnabile. Dopo il prevedibile fallimento dell'attacco, che causa ingenti perdite, viene aperta un'inchiesta con lo scopo di trovare un capro espiatorio al disastro annunciato. Così, un piccolo gruppo di uomini scelti a caso tra i ranghi inferiori viene trascinato dinanzi alla Corte Marziale con l'accusa di codardia. Il processo che ne segue è los angeles farsa agghiacciante di una pachidermica e impietosa macchina di potere, che passa da una forma di orrore omicida a un'altra, guidata in realtà solo dagli astrusi interessi di una minoranza. Scritto nel 1935 e adattato in keeping with il grande schermo nel 1957 da Stanley Kubrick, "Orizzonti di gloria" è una storia di coraggio e sacrificio: un romanzo, scritto da un lessen e ispirato a fatti realmente accaduti, che possiede sia il realismo viscerale del diario di guerra che il senso kafkiano dell'allegoria.

Il grande fuoco: 4 agosto 1972: l’attentato all’oleodotto di by Giuliano Sadar PDF

Una notte d’agosto. Quattro boati. Serbatoi da 90.000 tonnellate di greggio che saltano in aria. Un ‘fungo atomico’ nero sormontato da un candido cappello di anidride solforosa pronta a riversare una pioggia di acido sulla città. Ma in quei giorni non piovette e non soffiò l. a. bora. Una fortuna sfacciata che impedì los angeles reazione a catena da un serbatoio all’altro, come speravano i sabotatori.
I triestini non più giovani ancora oggi ricordano, forty three anni dopo, con un misto di inquietudine e timore. Ma pochissimi conoscono l. a. vera storia. Perché l’apocalisse sfiorata al deposito costiero della SIOT, piana di San Dorligo presso Trieste, ore three circa del four agosto 1972, è stata dimenticata. Messa da parte come uno scherzo della Storia. E invece di Storia ne è passata tanta in quei giorni a Trieste.
Fu il primo attentato palestinese in Italia, lo portò a termine Settembre Nero, che solo un mese dopo seminò los angeles morte alle Olimpiadi di Monaco. Ma fu anche un attentato di cui non si sono mai saputi con precisione mandanti, fiancheggiatori e neppure tutti gli esecutori. Perché dalla Francia, dove si erano rifugiati, non arrivò uno straccio di aiuto.
Trieste fu los angeles prima di una serie di azioni che poi costrinsero il governo italiano a stringere un accordo segreto con i movimenti palestinesi, il cosiddetto Lodo Moro, punto di svolta delle vicende italiane di effective Novecento, ma di cui ancora oggi si fa una dannata fatica a parlare. E in pieno Lodo Moro si celebrarono, in assoluta sordina, i due processi sull'attentato alla SIOT, conclusisi con una sentenza-barzelletta. Una vicenda che Giuliano Sadar ha dipanato partendo dai documenti dell’epoca, dalle testimonianze, dalle sentenze, dalle carte scovate nell'Archivio storico del Senato che custodisce gli atti integrali delle commissioni Stragi, Moro e Mitrokhin. Ne è uscito fuori un racconto avvincente, in cui una storia solo apparentemente minore incrocia le piste nascoste che ancora oggi impediscono all’Italia di definirsi un paese normale.
