The story of Fabrizio Piscitelli, the man that Italy has come to know as Diabolik cannot yet be told in its entirety. Not only because, as in the cartoon thief, humanity and crime coexisted in his personality, but above all because his life is still studded with too many mysteries, like his death: a mafia-style ambush that has remained without culprits.
Saturday 4 September at 9:25 pm arrives in the first tv on NINE “IRREDUCIBLE – THE LAST DAY OF DIABLO”, the special produced by Darallouche for Discovery Italia: the dizzying parable of Diabolik, the man who from head ultrà wanted to become the godfather of the criminal drug and usury markets in Rome.
A story that moves between the increasingly numerous overlaps between football supporters and the illegal activities of the ultras. Because the easy money in Rome today is made by hustling, usurping, blackmailing. On 7 August Diabolik was in the park of the Aqueducts, just before 7pm, sitting not far from the entrance to Via Lemonia, when he was approached from behind by the killer who exploded a single shot in the back of the head, killing him instantly. The Anti-Mafia Directorate of Rome has ascertained that Piscitelli had an appointment with someone. And that the attacker was on foot, dressed as a runner to blend in with the many who jog in that park in the afternoon. “Diabolik” Piscitelli was 53 years old, a good part of which he spent cheering on, while his name recurred in the papers of legal events linked to extreme typhus, but also to drug trafficking investigations. It is a criminal whirlwind that does not find peace and makes the streets of Rome more and more dangerous.
A journey full of pitfalls, led by investigative journalist Floriana Bulfon, flanked by Daniele Autieri. An unprecedented look at football supporters and the stadium as the basilica of the worst Rome, with interviews with the protagonists of the criminal resurgence and the contribution of investigators who will trace the history of this criminal dome and its endless financial interests.
