Carlo Giuliani (14 March 1978 - 20 July 2001) was an Italian anti-globalist who was shot dead by a police officer during the demonstrations against the Group of Eight summit that was held in Genoa from July 19 to July 21, 2001.

[edit] Incident
Death of Carlo Giuliani. Carabiniere's firearm can be seen in the top right of the left-hand photograph. In between these photos, the police vehicle has run over Giuliani's body twice.

Carlo Giuliani, born in Rome, was the son of Giuliano Giuliani,[1] a CGIL trade union activist, and Haidi Giuliani, who after his death would become a Senator for the Communist Refoundation Party. On July 20, 2001, Giuliani was participating in a protest against the 27th Group of Eight summit in Genoa, Italy, when he was killed during a violent clash between protesters and Italian Carabinieri in Piazza Alimonda. A Carabinieri vehicle became stuck and was attacked by protesters (wielding metal poles and wooden boards). In the midst of this clash, Giuliani, who was wearing a blue ski mask, picked up a fire extinguisher, intending to throw it at the officers inside the police Land Rover Defender, who were wearing black ski masks. He was shot in the face at point-blank range. The Land Rover then drove once backwards and once forwards over Giuliani's body.
[edit] Trial

All charges against the Carabiniere who shot Giuliani, Mario Placanica, were dropped, when the judge presiding over the case concluded that the fatal bullet that struck Giuliani was not directly aimed at Giuliani and had "ricocheted off plaster",[2] and ruled that he had acted in self-defense, without taking the case to trial.[1]

However, during a later trial in Genoa of some demonstrators allegedly involved in clashes the same day Giuliani was killed, the same forensic doctor, professor Marco Salvi, who had been a consultant to Silvio Franz, the prosecutor who led the case against Mario Platanito, testified that Giuliani had been the victim of a "direct hit", thus contradicting the decision previously made based on the alleged mid-air change of direction of the bullet. The conclusion of Judge Daloiso, which had already been subjected to strong criticism, was challenged by the press, as was the decision not to charge the driver of the Land Rover for running over Giuliani on the basis that he was already dead. Medics tending to Giuliani after he was run over testified that his heart was still beating[3], and this was confirmed by professor Salvi during the trial in Genoa.

To confuse the situation further, in late 2003 Placanica told the Bologna daily Il Resto Del Carlino that "I've been used to cover up the responsibility of others." He claimed that the bullet found in Giuliani's body was not of the caliber or type fired by the pistols of the Carabinieri, and claimed the deadly shot had come from somewhere in the piazza outside.[4] After making this statement, Placanica was involved in a "suspicious" car accident, days after allegedly observing someone tampering with his car.[5] Placanica was allegedly kept in seclusion following the incident, and his parents were not allowed to visit him in the hospital.[3]

On August 25, 2009 the European Court of Human Rights notified in writing its judgement in the case of Giuliani and Gaggio v. Italy. It judged no excessive use of force was used and it was not established that Italian authorities had failed to comply with their positive obligations to protect Carlo Giuliani’s life. The Court did judge Italy has not complied with its procedural obligations in connection with the death of Carlo Giuliani and has awarded a total of 40.000 euro in non-pecuniary damage to the three applicants.[6] In 2010, the case was referred to the Court's Grand Chamber on appeals from both sides.[7]
[edit] Legacy

* Carlo Giuliani has become a symbol of civil unrest during the G8 summit in Genoa.
* Following the 2007 Catania football violence, graffiti appeared in the headquarters of local newspaper Il Tirreno in Livorno, hailing the riot as revenge for Carlo Giuliani's death. Similar graffiti also appeared in Piacenza, Rome, Milan, and Palermo.
* The hip-hop Italian band Assalti Frontali released a song in his memory, titled "Rotta Indipendente" in their 2004 album "H.S.L."
* The anarcho-punk band Conflict released a song in his memory, titled "Carlo Giuliani".
* Slovenian anarcho-punk band Aktivna Propaganda talk of him in their song "Senza Frontiere" ("Without borders").
* Spanish ska band Ska-P remembers Carlo through their song "Solamente por pensar" ("Only For Thinking") [2] and then translated its lyrics into Italian for a concert in Italy, calling it "Solamente per pensare" (same title translated into Italian) .
* Croatian anarcho-crust band AK47 made a song titled c. Giuliani, in which they warned about meaning of his fight and his sacrifice.
* The North-American "Outspoken Word Troupe" of political poets published a piece entitled "A Tale of Two Giulianis" contrasting Carlo to former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.
* The English anarchist pop group Chumbawamba wrote English lyrics to the traditional World War II anti-fascist Italian partisans song Bella Ciao after visiting Genoa during the G8 summit meeting. The song was dedicated to Carlo Giuliani.[8]
* Italian singer-songwriter Francesco Guccini wrote a song about Carlo Giuliani and the G8 summit incidents, named "Piazza Alimonda" (the place where Giuliani was shot) and included in his album Ritratti of 2004. He is mentioned also in the new e-single Riot by Italian rapper/producer Nesli. The lyrics "Lascio in pace i morti come Carlo Giuliani" which roughly translated means "I leave the dead, like Carlo Giuliani, to rest in peace"
* Russian Oi/punk band Nichego Horoshego mentions Carlo in their song "V moyei strane"("In My Country").
* Piazza Alimonda, the plaza where Giuliani was killed, was unofficially renamed "Piazza Carlo Giuliani" by activists, who erected a memorial there for mementos, photographs, writings and flowers. This memorial has since been set on fire twice. Another memorial, instituted at the expense of his parents, features simply the words "Carlo Giuliani, boy." Another plaza, in Bern, Switzerland, has also been named "Carlo-Giuliani Platz" in memoriam; the renaming took place during a memorial art exhibition called The Geometries of Memory[9].
* In 2007, the Communist Refoundation Party renamed its Presidential Office in the Italian Parliament after Carlo Giuliani. Giuliani's mother, Haidi, was elected Senator for the party in the 2006 election specifically to begin a parliamentary inquiry into Carlo's death. There were many problems with right-wing party. After the exit from the parliament of PRC by the result of 2008 election, the name was changed.
* Giuliani has been described as "a Genovese hooligan" on p. 224 of Gary Shteyngart's novel Absurdistan.
* In 2002, Francesca Comencini directed a documentary film titled Carlo Giuliani, ragazzo about the shooting. It was screened out of competition at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival.[10]
* The 2005 film Dot.Kill directed by John Irvin described the Giuliani slaying as causing violent anti-globalist splinter groups to proliferate, as a possible motive for the online slayings of CEOs portrayed in the film.

More detailed updated at:

Based on a quick translation from repubblica.it
Six years after the anti-G8 riots in Genova in July 2001, an Italian court has handed down sentences of between 6 months and 11 years for 24 of the 25 "no globals" accused of "destruction and looting" for the riots ... Charges dropped for Nadia Sanna.

This is the first sentence for the tragic facts of july 6 years ago that lead to the killing of carlo giuliani in alimonda square. State prosecutors Anna Canepa and Andrea Canciani asked for 225 years totally: compared to the actual sentence the charges have been almost split in half.

Genoa G8: 225 years of jail asked for 25 accused

from email, Media G8way, 29 October 2007;

Press Release, Monday 29th October 2007

* G8 Genoa: state prosecution demands 225 years of jail sentences
* Those charged face compensation claims for Genoa's "image loss"
* Solidarity demonstrations in Genoa and Rostock

Six years after the G8 summit protests in Genoa a number of court cases against demonstrators and members of the police force are still taking place. The cases against police officers and Carabinieri are being stalled in order to take advantage of the statute of limitation that will soon expire. In the cases against the 25 activists the state prosecuters Canepa and Canciani are displaying full force. There have never been such high sentence demands for street clashes.

The witnesses have all been heard. In its plea the state prosecution is demanding jail sentences between 6 and 16 years, a total of 225 years. With these convictions they intend to write history: "Let's call Genoa what it was: looting and destruction". Last week the Government in Rome ordered compensation claims against the 25 charged. These claims total 2.6 million Euros for the property damage that occurred, for example at the Marassi prison. Included in this is a large sum intended as compensation for the image loss the city of Genoa is said to have suffered.

"Genoa was a revolt. The 25 charged stand for all of the 300,000 people in the streets of Genoa. In all the diversity, there was one common goal: to delegitimise the G8 and the Red Zone", Hanne Jobst of the Gipfelsoli Infogroup stated.

Under the banner, "Back to Genoa", many of the different groups who mobilised against the Genoa summit in 2001 are now calling for a demonstration in Genoa on November 17th as a unified display of strength and solidarity. The demonstration is supported by Members of Parliament Luca Casarini and Vittorio Agnoletto, as well as Haidi Giuliani, the mother of Carlo Giuliani who was shot dead by police during the demonstrations in 2001. Further supporters include Father Don Andrea Gallo and Naomi Klein. [wtf?]

Members of the Alleanza Nazionale and the right-wing police union are demanding that the demonstration to be prohibited. With the slogan,"Looting to defend their arguments; Black Block, No Global and their surroundings", the police themselves intend to march on Genoa. The police union COISP has registered "sit-ins" in all public places.

"We will not let the police and the state prosecution write the history of the Genoa protests", activists from Genoa declared. The police were the ones who started the confrontations in the streets after one of the units arbitrarily attacked the legal demonstration of the "Disobbedienti". During the clashes another unit shot the 23-year old Carlo Giuliani. Hundreds of people were brutally mishandled in the streets and prisons. The next day the police and Carabinieri attacked demonstrators whilst they were asleep in the "Diaz School".

On November 17th there will be a solidarity demonstration in the German town of Rostock against the police attacks, mass arrests and mistreatments during the G8 summits in Genoa and Heiligendamm.

- Oct 2007 - Updates on Genoa Court Case
- The prosecutors ask 225 years of jail for 25 protestors

Genoa court case are not ending tomorrow, but they are drawing to a close, an people seems to have forgotten what Genoa meant and how big part of history we have been when we decided to take the streets in those days of July 2001. While the court cases against police officers for the tortures in Bolzaneto and for the raid in the Diaz school move slowly forward (one will be ending by the end of the year and the other around summer 2008) towards meak convictions and statute of limitations after the first court sentence, the court case against 25 protestors has seen this last weeks the prosecutors final speech.

In their speech the prosecutors Anna Canepa and Andrea Canciani frontally attacked the protest in Genoa, asking 225 years of jail for the 25 people accused of devastating and sacking the city on July 20th and 21st. The speech of the prosecutors asks people to call Genoa events for what they were: devastation, sacking, arson. They stated that at the same time the massacres and the abuses of police should be prosecuted but never did themselves open an investigation on the facts, and insisted that they should be kept out of the court case against 25 protestors. The prosecutors actually said that people decided to resist and that this fact should be sanctioned, since they should have dispersed and eventually file a complain for the violence the police enacted.

In their speech the prosecutors tried to explain the judge that all of those who were present in Genoa are equally responsible of the allegations, since "moral responsability is even more crucial than material responsibility for Genoa events: if I inspire 20 people to throw a stone I should be hold more responsible of devastation than if I threw five of them". This brings back criminal codes to the middle ages, where you were not supposed to actually have done anything to be convicted. This is why some of the accused where asked to be convicted to 6 years only because they are seen around the scenes of the riots (not doing anything particular or in a lot of cases just putting some trash bin in the streets to slow down police charges).

But this is not the worst part of the prosecutors speech, since they have been reinterpreting Genoa to provide history with a clean and one-sided version of the events: Police acted correctly and protestors are oversizing the abuses, but the truth is that they should have gone home and let the Summit be. The prosecutor have been stating that the charge in via Tolemaide against the Tute Bianche demo was fairly quick and not particularly violent, so it's not understandable how protestors would complain constantly of "fearing for their own life"; they have been saying that Carabinieri armored transport only charged at full speed twice and that the barricades were made before this, so protestors should not "fuss" about it being the reason for the vehicle attack. They even came to minimize Carlo Giuliani's death, saying that there could have been worse situation if the Carabinieri inside the soon-to-be-burned van were not rescued by their colleagues.

Our history is being raped by two prosecutors who desperately want to show that 4 years of enquiry were useful (even if to justify their lies they misuse only statements of the defense's witness) and that someone is responsible for what happened in Genoa. They want to show off in the "trial that will change many a ways to do court cases in Italy", at the expenses of 25 protestors like all of us. If the judges will acknoledge the point of view of the prosecutors, and convict 25 people to 6-16 years of jail, each one of us could be the next culprit. Think of how many insults you have shouted during the G8 in Genoa, think of how many stones you have thrown, think of how much rage you felt while you and your friends were beaten.

We agree only on one point with the prosecutor. Let's call Genoa 2001 for what it was: it was a revolt and it was history and it was us. And that's why they are scared and why they want to avoid that anybody will try again to take away power from where it usually stands.
