Locations

Forty years after the deadly attack of 3 September 1983 in via Carini 13 (Palermo) when General Carlo Alberto dalla Chiesa lost his life with his wife and a bodyguard, the series The General’s Men tells the story about the battle to defend democracy against the Red Brigades and the establishment of the Nucleo Speciale Antiterrorismo (Special Antiterrorism Branch), the handpicked group of young undercover carabinieri officers created by dalla Chiesa to tackle the Brigades’ “armed propaganda” actions with new investigative methods.

Set during the “years of lead”, the series begins in 1973 when General dalla Chiesa (Sergio Castellitto) was transferred from Palermo where he was investigating the mafia to Turin where he is to look into growing tension in the so-called industrial triangle (Turin, Milan, Genoa) of the North.

Made with the cooperation of the Comando Generale dell’Arma dei Carabinieri, the series intertwines repertory images and footage with an accurate reconstruction of the public and private events of the protagonists, and used some of the places where these took place, including the Pietro Micca Carabinieri Barracks in Turin and the courtyard where the Red Brigades assassinated Fulvio Croce, president of the Turin Bar Association.  Other locations included: the La Crocetta neighbourhood, the former Le Nuove prison, the galleria Subalpina, Cinema Romano, Le Roi Dancing Music Hall Lutrario, and the Chiablese rooms, part of Turin’s Royal Museum complex.

The wave of terrorism burgeoned, spreading from the factories where the protest began, and expanded, aiming at the men and palaces of power: consequently, Rome was also a location.

Plot
In 1973, General dalla Chiesa is transferred from Palermo, where he was investigating the Mafia, to Turin where the Red Brigades are beginning their first “armed propaganda” actions. Despite resistance from the carabinieri top brass, he establishes the Nucleo Speciale Antiterrorismo (Special Antiterrorism Branch); a group of handpicked officers, all extremely young, highly specialised and capable of moving undercover in environments close to the Brigades. Dalla Chiesa’s great strategic ability, which includes both the “fight on the ground” and his understanding of the key importance of pentiti, and the great courage of his men will win the war against the Red Brigades.
