The assassination of the Rosselli brothers

On the 9th of June 1937, in the French spa town of Bagnoles-de-l'Orne, the Rosselli brothers, Carlo and Nello, were savagely murdered by right-wing thugs. The perpetrators were members of the far-right French clandestine group La Cagoule. The act was sanctioned by the Italian Fascist government in exchange for, “one hundred semi-automatic Berretta rifles.” Carlo Rosselli was the epitome of the resistance; he was the “enfant terrible” of anti-fascist expatriates. This essay will briefly summarize their ideology and actions, and highlight what led up to their assassinations and its aftermath.
