Enzo Martucci (1904-1975) became an anarchist at the age of 16 when he ran away from his bourgeois home and studies. Following this he was imprisoned by the fascist regime and its democratic successors. Martucci wrote several books, including Put Qltre (1947), La Bandiers dell’ Anticristo (1950) La Setta Rosse (1953, new edition 1969). From 1965 until the year before his death he issued his own paper, virtually written by himself. Each issue had a different title in order to evade the Italian printing laws.

Two or three years before his death he was sentenced to a term of imprisonment for reasons which he never divulged. After his release, he wrote to Stephen Marlette on January 8, 1974 announcing his intention of reviving his paper. This he did shortly afterwards, publishing one final issue with the title of La Ribellione. From then nothing was heard from him.
