On August 2, 1980, the bombing of Bologna station took place. This was an action of the Red Brigades or the Brigate Rosse. The result was 85 deaths. In the late 1970, 2000 attacks were executed on average per year in Italy. The Red Brigades are probably a continuation of the resistance movement of 1944-45. On March 16, 1978, Prime Minister Aldo Moro was kidnapped by the Red Brigades. 55 days later he was found dead in a Roman street, in the trunk of a Renault 4.
