There is an attempted insurance fraud behind the Quargnento tragedy for which the carabinieri stopped last night Giovanni Vincenti, the owner of the exploded farmhouse where three firefighters died. The public prosecutor of Alessandria, Enrico Cieri, announced this. The arrested man confessed, denying however the intention to want to kill. His wife is also being investigated for the same offenses.
"The timer was set at 1.30 but accidentally there was also a setting at midnight. This led to the first modest explosion which, alas, alerted the fire brigade ". The prosecutor thus reconstructs the farmhouse explosion. The explosion had to be only one but the error in programming the timer, connected to the gas cylinders, caused the tragedy.
Giovanni Vincenti, however, could avoid the tragedy. He always explains it. "On the night of the tragedy, Vincenti was informed by a carabiniere that the first fire was almost broken – says the magistrate -. Vincenti did not say that there were five other tanks inside the house that continued to leak gas. It was around 1, there would have been half an hour to avoid the tragedy ».
Then turned into the night in the investigation on the explosion of Quargneto. The police of the Provincial Command of Alexandria stopped and listened to the owner of the farmhouse, Giovanni Vincenti, assisted by the lawyer Laura Mazzolini. The dossier opened by the prosecutor Enrico Cieri hypothesizes the crimes of arson, multiple murder and voluntary injuries.
Vincenti had been heard several times by the carabinieri, reconvened on Friday evening, at 9 pm here was the turning point: he was quickly summoned by the soldiers to assist his client, the lawyer for Vincenti, Laura Mazzolini. Giovanni Vincenti and his wife were "heavily indebted," explains the public prosecutor of Alessandria, explaining the details of the operation that led to the arrest of Vincenti and to investigate his wife on the loose for the death of three firefighters in the explosion of the farmhouse Quargnento. "Last August – the magistrate reveals – the insurance of the building had been extended to the malicious fact. The maximum premium was one and a half million euros ".

The turning point in the investigations a few hours after the solemn funerals of Antoninus, Mark and Matthew in the cathedral of Saints Peter and Mark of Alexandria, in the presence among others of the premier Giuseppe Conte, of the president of the Chamber Roberto Fico and of the Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese . "You have to catch them, you have to do everything to catch them", was the appeal that the relatives of the three victims turned to the President of the Council. "We need to understand why and who did this" was the urgent invitation of the provincial fire brigade commander, Roberto Marchioni, to express the "anger" of the firemen in the face of this tragedy.
But that is not all. «No comment»: the provincial commander of the Carabinieri of Alexandria, Colonel Michele Angelo Lorusso, responded to the journalists who asked him if Stefano Vincenti, son of Giovanni, the man who was arrested last night, was also involved in the explosion. "Investigations are continuing," reiterated the prosecutor of Alessandria, Enrico Cieri.
