The latest news on the sad and infinite story of Emanuela Orlandi, the fifteen-year-old daughter of the papal clerk Ercole vanished into thin air when green buses were still circulating in Rome and tokens were used tokens, dates back to April 30, in full lockdown: the Vatican, after the Italian judiciary (in 2015), recently closed the investigation into the Orlandi case, in the specific case relating to the mountain of bones piled up in the hatches of the Teutonic cemetery. No, not even in the small cemetery located within the Sacred walls, according to the judge of Oltretevere, there were remains of Emanuela: the fragments found are in fact datable in the period prior to the disappearance of the fifteen year old. The most recent date back to at least a hundred years ago. The family can make checks, the conclusion was.
Emanuela Orlandi, the story and the characters of a mystery
Karol Wojtyla’s appeal to the Angelus on July 3, 1983
A blow to the hopes of Pietro Orlandi and the other relatives, who return to demonstrate: scheduled for tomorrow 22 June 2020, from 6 to 8 pm, in Piazza Sant’Apollinare, the sit-in organized by Emanuela’s brother and the Fb group that supports his battle, to commemorate the 37th anniversary of the kidnapping of Emanuela Orlandi. Not a random place: in that square, around 7pm on that 22 June 1983, the girl with the band found herself leaving the music school (where she attended flute and choral singing lessons) and spar. His last signal was a call home. The parents, Hercules and mum Maria, were not there. He spoke to one of the sisters, to whom he said he had received a strange offer to make leaflets on behalf of a cosmetic company, Avon, in exchange for a disproportionate amount: 375 thousand lire in one afternoon.
A trap, a trap. Who had approached the unfortunate student with the shoulder flute and denim overalls? the first of the many mysteries that led Emanuela, together with her peer Mirella Gregori, who disappeared a month earlier, at the center of a very complicated intrigue that the first letters of claim and the request for exchange with Al Agca tied immediately to the attack on Pope John Paul II made by the Turkish extremist in St. Peter’s Square two years earlier, on 13 May 1981.
Torchlight processions and appeals, a long mobilization
Now, with the sit-in for the 37th year without truth, the last appointment of the many, including the party for the large mural placed a couple of years ago in Corviale, Pietro Orlandi relaunches: We have chosen Piazza Sant’Apollinare – he said in an interview with Radio Cusano Tv Italia – as a particularly symbolic place: the intertwining of the State, Church and crime, since in that basilica the burial of the body of the former boss of the Magliana gang Enrico De Pedis (of the late widow of Renatino, Carla Di Giovanni, here the article), and since the former President of the Republic and former Interior Minister Oscar Luigi Scalfaro and the then Cardinal Vicar of Rome lived in the same building Ugo Poletti. As for the latest developments in the Vatican, Emanuella’s brother has a conviction: The recent new filing certainly does not close the investigation into the disappearance of my sister, we continue to demand answers from the Vatican. And thanks also to the lawyer Laura Sgr we are asking that I can finally be heard by the Vatican.
a novelty, this: in many years of battle for the truth (since 2004, when he collected the witness of his father Ercole) Pietro Orlandi never came to present a legal request to be formally interrogated Oltretevere. Which will happen soon, by Tuesday June 23 at the latest. This was confirmed by Laura Sgr herself: Pietro Orlandi’s request for questioning is almost ready and will be formalized in the next few hours. Emanuela’s brother urges: The story of the tombs at the Teutonic cemetery – he added – cannot end with simple archiving. In fact, in those tombs 26 bags of bones have been found so far examined only on sight and our experts said that they must absolutely be examined in greater detail. Therefore, we are organizing with our expert pool to see how we can proceed. I sincerely hope that Emanuela’s bones are not in those bags, because I always hope to find her still alive, but we will do everything possible to examine them, even resorting to expensive practices. Because we don’t want to leave any stone unturned, we also want to close this question and remove all doubts. ([email protected])
