The Antimafia in Nordio: “For Cospito 41 bis or high security”

Alfredo Cospito can remain at 41 bis or return to the high security regime, however with all due caution. He has an open conclusion, which relies on the assessments of the political authority, the opinion delivered by the national anti-mafia and anti-terrorism prosecutor to the Minister of Justice Carlo Nordio. A document about ten pages long which – according to what has been learned – therefore does not give a clear indication, while reiterating that the decision of May 5, 2022 to apply the harsh prison to him was founded.

“A very singular event happened: Alfredo Cospito had prepared a letter to be sent to the authorities who can receive them to supervise against torture, against inhuman and degrading treatments. This sheet, contained in a notebook, was taken from him, withheld, seized by the new institute of Opera. Furthermore, they have stolen the books that came from the Bancali prison and therefore he has nothing left to read and much less to write”. This was stated by the lawyer Flavio Rossi Albertini.

“Alfredo is increasingly thin, he has lost 45 kilos. The situation is getting extremely complicated and it is going beyond the critical threshold. He is absolutely determined to move forward but he is aware that this will lead to irreparable consequences”, says the lawyer Albertini.

“Alfredo Cospito says that there is no difference between Sassari and Opera at the moment for his needs”: he he reported the Lombard regional councilor of +Europa/Radicali, Michele Usuelli, who yesterday visited the Milan prison where he is being held at 41bis Cospito. The anarchist was recently transferred from Sassari to the Integrated Assistance Center of the Opera prison.

“Cospito is focused on the battle for a more humane 41bis, so much so that he wanted to specify that he is afraid that other inmates may think he receives preferential treatment as he is known. He had this concern very much”, said the Lombard regional councilor of + Europe/Radicals Michele Usuelli.

Tomorrow at 12 the senator of the Green and Left Alliance Ilaria Cucchi will carry out an inspection at the Opera prison to verify the health conditions of Alfredo Cospito.


“There will be a serious attack in Bologna, in relation to the events in Cospito”. This is the text of the anonymous call that arrived on Tuesday 31 January at the reception desk of Il Resto del Carlino in Bologna. The news was reported by the Qn and the Bologna edition of the newspaper. Digos immediately intervened in via Mattei, to listen to the employee who took the call.

Yesterday, again at the Carlino, a letter also arrived against Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and Defense Minister Guido Crosetto, against the Government’s policy on Ukraine. “In case of persistence, we will be forced to take serious measures”, writes the unknown sender.

The digos, coordinated by the public prosecutor’s office, has launched investigations to trace the identity of the anonymous telephone operator who on 31 January called the concierge desk of Il Resto del Carlino in Bologna announcing the attack. The attention in Bologna, given the moment, is high, as well as in other Italian cities, and first of all the digos is trying to trace, through the analysis of telephone records, the number from which the call originated: a cabin, a house or a mobile. It is a male voice, with a slight Bolognese cadence. At the moment the investigators are not overwhelmed: it could be the gesture of a mythomaniac, or something much more serious. What is certain is that the police will pay particular attention to some garrisons and demonstrations scheduled in the city these days. This afternoon, in Piazza dell’Unità, an initiative advertised on the blogs of the opposing area will take place, entitled ‘Let’s take back the streets, because we’ll make safety!’, against the ’round-ups’ in the Bolognina district. And tomorrow, as announced instead on the site of the anarchist space Tribolo, two appointments are scheduled ‘Alongside Alfredo Cospito against the 41 bis and life imprisonment impediment’. At 5.00 pm there will be a garrison under the regional superintendency of the penitentiary administration and at 6.30 pm another in front of the juvenile prison in via del Pratello.


A sentence in favor of Cospito was written by supposedly anarchist activists on the Constitution Bridge in Venice. The act of vandalism affected the glass handrails of the fourth bridge over the Grand Canal designed by the Catalan architect Santiago Calatrava which connects Piazzale Roma with the Santa Lucia. As ‘Il Gazzettino’ reports, the writing ‘Cospito libero’ was immediately cleaned up and everything was canceled within 40 minutes. Some passersby, seeing the writings and their removal, applauded the technician who was restoring the windows. The Constitution Bridge, since its opening 15 years ago, has been constantly subject to vandalism starting with the smearing writings up to the breaking of a marble abutment at the beginning of the staircase on the side of Piazzale Roma.
