Biography

Italian terrorist, the founder and former leader of the Italian left-wing militant organization, the Red Brigades (Brigate Rosse).

After getting arrested in February 1971 for occupying a vacant house, Curcio and the most militant members of the Proletarian Left went completely underground and organized the Red Brigades and spent the next three years, from 1972 to 1975, engaging in a series of bombings and kidnappings of prominent figures. Curcio was captured, but freed by his wife Margherita in a raid on the prison five months later. Three weeks after the dramatic prison escape, Margherita was killed in a shootout with the Carabinieri. Curcio was again captured by the authorities in January 1976, tried, convicted and imprisoned.

In April 1993 he was allowed to spend the day outside the jail in order to work as writer then in 1998 he was freed. To date, Curcio has not expressed remorse for the activity of the Red Brigades.
