Additional Notes Anarchists Pietro Fusari and Giuseppe Esposito were in their mid-twenties when Italian authorities began to track their activities. Specifically, the police suspected that Fusari provided weapons to workers during the sit-down strikes that swept Italy’s industrial heartland in September 1920. A year later he was arrested but subsequently released for lack of evidence following the anarchist bombing in Milan. Esposito’s police records state that he had proven himself a “dangerous antifascist,” “capable of violent and uncontrolled actions,” who consequently was arrested and sentenced for “crimes against property and individuals.”
