November 22, 1963: The Italian answer to the enigma of XX Century:
"Here's who killed John Kennedy"
A book planned to make a fuss. For the first time, an Italian researcher, Diego Verdegiglio, condenses all the official and private investigations that have taken place about the crime of the XX Century in 600 pages of his own recently published book ("Here's who killed John Kennedy", Mancosu Publish. - Roma, Italia, 1998). This volume was presented at the Turin Book Fair and by professor Massimo Teodori (a famous italian americanist) and Erich B. Kusch at the Foreign Press of Rome, and has announced to be clamorous in its forecast. The author, with the help of an enormous amount of documents, spent 3 years researching in the United States and in Italy to clear up the matter of 35 years of often imaginative investigations without any credibility which had a strong impact, however, on public opinion. Verdegigilio (who met Senator Edward M. "Ted" Kennedy in JFK Library-Boston, february 6, 1997) wasn't satisfied with digging through the vast amount of paper produced by 5 official commissions. Instead, he wanted to personally experience the target spot of the famous window of the Texas School Book Depository in Dallas. He followed the complete itinerary by car of the presidential motorcade, he made on the spot investigations at Parkland Hospital, the Central Police Station of Dallas, Bethesda Naval Hospital in Maryland, Hyannis Port (Kennedy's East Coast residence), and in Boston, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Miami. Thanks to the collaboration of PhD. Martino Farneti, Director of Ballistics at the Criminal/Scientific Police Headquarters in Rome, Verdegiglio was personally able to shoot in seven seconds three targets with the same type of italian rifle used in Dallas. He also investigated well-known ballistic experts, famous forensic doctors, and criminologists. He reports on the real dimensions (disappointing to the public which is used to the gratifying "criminal lies" of Jim Garrison, Mark Lane, and Oliver Stone) of an event that is so extraordinarily complex and full of unsettling coincidences, yet without the great conspiratorial constructions that our logic would want to link in any case to the assassination of a famous person such as the american President. The mythology of the conspiracy theory which came about after the Dallas crime is carefully destroyed in this book, supplemented by 700 notes, each of which is also a large bibliography. The author's ironic style dismantles the theses one by one, from the very absurd ones to the most accredited ones by the non serious press in the USA and Italy.
The first chapter is a detailed cronology of the life and of the Presidency of J.F.K.
The second chapter examines the constant "sense of impending death" that was with the President through his final hours. The presages of violent death were numerous during Kennedy's lifetime, but he very fatalistically didn't pay much attention to it. The total protection of the head of a democratic country, that gains support for its power from the direct contact with the people, is in fact impossible. On that tragic trip in Texas, the Secret Service men were explicitly forbidden by Kennedy to surround him by standing on the running board of the presidential car. After a rainy morning, J.F.K. arrived in Dallas on a sunny noon. This was another absurd coincidence that exposed the occupants of the limousine to the assassinator's shots by keeping the clear plastic hard top roof (the bubble top) off the vehicle. The last paragraph is the dramatically fascinating story of that day, based on what was told by William Manchester and Jim Bishop. That chain of events and often paradoxical situations are a surprise to the reader.
The third chapter is about the Investigation of the Warren Commission (1964) and of HSCA(1978-79). It's also about the amount of coverage given by the Press about the bold and surreal conspiracy theories developed by Mark Lane (who the author met in 1992) and by the visionary New Orleans District Attorney, Jim Garrison. The fanatical attorney from New Orleans was shown as a positive hero, played by the fascinating Kevin Costner in JFK by Oliver Stone.
The author dedicates his fourth chapter to his work to show the badfaith, the prejudice, and the total lack of scruples towards the foreseeable credulousness of the general public. Stone is called a "criminal of History". His film, which is irreproachable as cinematography, is described as an insult to truth, honesty, and morality. His thesis that the Pentagon and the CIA killed Kennedy, in order to pull out the troops from Vietnam, is without any sort of basis. Kennedy found himself in the middle of the Asian conflict, just as Lyndon Johnson did afterwards. Besides, McGeorge Bundy and Robert McNamara were advisors to both the Presidents.
Verdegiglio dedicates the fifth chapter entirely to what he calls "the factory of lies", or rather the manipulation of information in the news. Next to the many examples of falsitiy and distortions on the Kennedy case, he himself constructs, as an example, an amusing false scoop (based however on irreproachable sources) entitled “The CIA killed Pope John XXIII”.
The sixth chapter, certainly destined to create bitter disputes, destroys page by page the investigation conducted by one of the Italian journalists who has principally dealt with the Dallas crime with his book The President: Gianni Bisiach.
The last chapter is a complete analysis of his research and his conclusions: Oswald acted of his own initiative, and he was the only killer of Kennedy. There was no conspiracy, if that means the organized and finalized desire to assassinate the President by a group of hostile persons. Verdegiglio admits, however, that Oswald, who was a psycopath who was taken to criminal gesture of his own doing, could have been influenced by his contacts in Dallas and in New Orleans with the rightists or the anti-Castroists who were supported by the CIA and by the oil industries; they could have had suspicions about the intentions of the young ex-Marine to do such a clamorous act. Would Johnson have been a better President rather than Kennedy for these people? The following events showed that, had things gone that way, to count on Johnson would have been a mistake: the new President didn't invade Cuba, but he also completely froze the Cuban issue. The study of the movements and intentions of Jack Ruby, who killed Oswald in the chaos of the Dallas Police Station two days after he was captured, revealed to Verdegiglio only a latent psycopath roused by the assassination, and the action of a madman (Jew and owner of a strip-tease bar in the very racist and puritanical Dallas of 1963) in search of a heroic gesture as an avenger of an impossible social redemption. The author often cites the American writer, Don De Lillo, who deals with the images of Lee Harvey Oswald and of Jack Ruby with a rare narrative power in his realistic and very well documented novel “Libra”.
The last part of the volume shows appendices of news, interviews, criminology, ballistics, and forensic medicine. The bibliography lists a thousand works on the subject "Kennedy". The book ends with 162 photographs which include (for the first time in an Italian book) the shocking ones taken of the body of John Kennedy during the autopsy. Diego Verdegiglio concludes, and imagines that his research, even though it's complete and based on irrefutable proofs, will surely be met with disbelief by many who are ill with the "conspiracy disease" or "plotmania". However, what are the key questions that this book answers? Here are some of the completely groundless and imaginary inferences that this investigation categorically disproves with inconfutable evidence:
1) The route of the presidential motorcade were changed at the last minute by the mayor of Dallas Earl Cabell (brother of a CIA official) so that it would pass below the building where Oswald was positioned.
2) The autopsy of Kennedy was falsified and his brain was caused to disappear because it disproved the hypothesis of only one shot from behind.
3) Many of the most important witnesses died in a suspicious way a short time after the assassination.
4) The majority of the witnesses heard shots coming from the grassy knoll behind and to the right of Kennedy's vehicle and headed towards that area. Some photographs that were enlarged showed on the grassy knoll the shadow of another killer positioned there and a cloud of smoke from the bushes.
5) Oswald would never have been able to achieve the difficult attempt with the necessary speed with his old Italian rifle. Only one bullet would have had to zigzag many times in an absurd way to pierce at the same time Kennedy and Governor Connally.
6) In the film taken by the spectator Zapruder you can see the President's head brusquely move backwards: a clear sign of a shot from in front of him, in contrast with what the Warren Commission stated.
7) Kennedy was killed by a Mafia conspiracy together with the anti-Castroists, the oil-industry, and the CIA.
8) Kennedy was killed by a conspiracy of the Pentagon, the military industries, and Lyndon Johnson because he wanted to pull out of Vietnam.
9) James Earl Ray (later killer of Martin Luther King) and Sihran Bishara Sihran (later killer of Bob Kennedy) were in Dallas on November 22, 1963, one the green lawn of the square where Kennedy was killed.
10) Jack Ruby was part of the conspiracy and killed Lee Harvey Oswald two days later to keep him from talking. Ruby was also killed in prison before he was able to reveal who comissioned him.

Diego Verdegiglio, a writer and historical researcher, has been working for a long time in the field of the cinema, radio, television and information. He has done some TV reports for the italian RAI-TV ("Guardia Piemontese: The Future in the History", "The Young People of Catanzaro") and directed some commercials. Together with professor Arturo Genre (Historical Language Dept., Turin University) and Silvana Primavera, he published "Taliant dë la pèire da Garroc" (Dall'Orso Publish., Alessandria, 1992), an ethnolinguistic research on the Provençal-Waldensian minority in Calabria, Southern Italy. He has worked with TV author Antonio Ricci (Italia Uno TV Network). Together with Francesco Valitutti he has worked on some documentaries (a political and human profile of the Italian Republican Party leader Ugo La Malfa and a portrait of the Italian writer and poet Gabriele D'Annunzio) and on a short on the National Park of Abruzzo. Together with fil director Mario Foglietti, he has done several works for theatre and television, and produced "Prima che il gallo canti" (Before the cock-crow), a film on the exile of the Italian writer Cesare Pavese (RAI-TV, Channel One, 1993). In the course of his journey to the USA, he has gathered a remarkable amount of records on the assassination of president John F. Kennedy, a subject on which he ranks among the most eminent Italian experts (the book is now available only via e-mail: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Dallas, November 22nd, 1963: the murder of John Kennedy deeply shakes the whole world. After decades of doubts, disputes and controversial research, this book represents the most updated and thorough work ever published on this topic by an Italian writer, from which the identity of the true murderer surfaces with the utmost clarity. Starting from the various official inquiries and from the most reliable reports, the book goes over the whole bulk of the public and private investigations, as well as the numerous "revelations" that have followed one another over the last thirty-five years, since the first few hours after the tragedy, also availing itself of the assistance of renowned italian pathologists, criminologists and ballistic experts. In confirmation of the data produced by the inquiries, on-the-spot investigations and range trials have been carried out in Dallas, Washington D.C. and New Orleans, while the theories of Jim Garrison, Mark Lane, Oliver Stone and italian journalist Gianni Bisiach have been thoroughly scrutinised. The book leads us through the meanders of a story which is both tragic and absorbing, and turns out to be the most convincing and truthful answer to all the questions that "the Murder of the Century" has stirred over the last few decades. Those who are willing to read the outcome of this research free from prejudice, will be able to appreciate its historical value and documentary soundness.
