Sample text

In June 1801, Saverio Simoni, a day-labourer, was tried on the charge of firing shots earlier in the year at Giovan-Antono, Antono Torre, Alfonso Colonna and another man 'as they were working in the vineyard of Giovan-Santo Fieschi'. It appears that Simoni was employed by the Bruni brothers and was acting on their behalf. Speaking 'in the name of his party', Antono Feliciaggi had warned Simoni 'that he should not work either in the vines or on the land of the Bruni', which led Giovanni Bruni to declare a similar ban.

It appears that Simoni was employed by the Bruni brothers and was acting on their behalf. Speaking 'in the name of his party', Antono Feliciaggi had warned Simoni 'that he should not work either in the vines or on the land of the Bruni', which led Giovanni Bruni to declare a similar ban. In August, it was reported that Antono the son of Mario Bozzi had died from wounds. Later the same year, the authorities arrested twelve people from PilaCanale as hostages. These were relatives of those believed to be responsible for the killings in the village but who had themselves eluded capture.

The mayor, a Giacomoni, banned the festivals usually held at the end of July, and the subprefect proposed sending a detachment of voltigeurs to Santa-Lucia. This prevented further trouble until the autumn. Then, in October, Giovanni Poli was killed, and at the beginning of November, Giovan-Battiste Quilichini was again attacked and, this time, killed, by Luca-Luigi Giacomoni. The subprefect reported later that month that the village was 'in a state of desolation difficult to describe: the doors of the houses are barricaded, the windows crenellated, the streets entirely deserted'.
