Sergio Flamigni

Sergio Flamigni (born 22 October 1925[1]) is an Italian politician and writer. A member of the Italian Communist Party (PCI), he took part in the Italian Parliament's investigative commissions on the murder of Aldo Moro, the Propaganda Due scandal and on mafia.


Flamigni was born in Forlì[2] and began his political activity in 1941, as a member of a clandestine group of young anti-fascists in his hometown, and subsequently entered the Communist Party. In 1943 he was named secretary of the communist youth movement in Forlì and became a member of the party's clandestine committee in the city. He fought as partisan in the Italian resistance movement against the German occupation.[3]

In 1952 he was appointed as secretary of CGIL (Italy's left main trade union) in Forlì, and later he became secretary of the local section of PCI. In 1959 he was elected into the party's national central committee, and, in the following year, regional coordinator for Emilia-Romagna. He was also a member of the city council of Forlì from 1956 to 1960, and of the provincial council from 1960 until 1964.[4]

He was elected to the Italian Chamber of Deputies in 1968, remaining a member until 1979, when he became a Senator. Flamigni worked in the Parliament's commissions on mafia, the kidnapping of Aldo Moro and the Propaganda Due secret lodge, and wrote several books about these arguments.[5]
