Aldo Moro 

 

 Aldo Romeo Luigi Moro  September 23, 1916 – May 9, 1978) was a centre-left Italian politician and the 36th and 38th Prime Minister of Italy, from 1963 to 1968, and then from 1974 to 1976. He was one of Italy's longest-serving post-war Prime Ministers, holding power for a combined total of more than six years.

A leader of Democrazia Cristiana (Christian Democracy, DC), Moro was considered an intellectual and a patient mediator, especially in the internal life of his party. He was kidnapped on March 16, 1978, by the Red Brigades(BR), a Marxist–Leninist urban guerilla organization, and killed after 55 days of captivity.
