Here we are, in 2016, 'arguing' about pins. I don't think we should be doing that - at this advanced stage of our common research / discovery-journey through the hard-to-imagine phoniness of most of this world's countless, "socially traumatic", media-reported events. Having said that, I do treasure your occasional 'devil's advocate' contributions - which remind me of the good ol' days when you questioned my analyses of NASA's Space Shuttles - remember? Also, and more to the point (of this thread), you may remember how you started questioning for yourself the media-released imagery of Aldo Moro's corpse depicted in that red Renault 4:
...it becomes crucial to find out how tall Aldo Moro really was. (corsarino, can you piece together the source for that information about Moro's height?). I had to make this post for intellectual honestly, since I argued before that it was not strange for Moro to fit into that trunk. I am not entirely sure anymore...

Ok, so I'm (almost) willing to retract my "slam & dunk" quote regarding Gianni's (my old Roman friend and veteran researcher) finding - i.e. the image showing those round(ish) holes at the bottom of the Alfetta car. We simply have no way of knowing whether these holes are meant to be bullet holes - or if they are, as you contend, just caused by someone repeatedly stitching that photo on a wall with those 'Italian', triple-pins (puntine da disegno a tre punte). Your contention, in my humble opinion, is a bit weak - and here's why: firstly, and as our forum member "Honestly Now" rightly points out, there is no circular pattern of these supposed triple-pins - nor are any of those holes equidistant - as they should be if they were caused by such triple pins. Secondly, I well remember that back in my cartoonist/graphic designer days, I used these triple-pins to secure my drawings (and even photographs) upon a wooden plate - as I preferred them over the conventional single pins which, of course, punched an ugly, circular hole in my drawing paper. Those triple-pins (which, obviously, can never cause circular
holes but just a thin / straight little slit) allowed me to 'wound' my drawings with only ONE of these three pins - the other two remaining outside of the edge of my drawing paper. But enough about these pins. Let us 'get real' and focus on what, in my opinion, really matters - regarding the alleged Aldo Moro 'kidnapping and shoot-out' in Via Fani, on March 16, 1978. Of course, what we (here on Cluesforum) should ask ourselves - with what we know now - are the following questions:
1:"Is there any evidence of this media-reported event to have been staged - with the active complicity of the news media ?"
2: "Are there any indications pointing to possible image fakery / manipulation / doctoring of this media-reported event?"
The answer to these questions, as far as I can see, is a definite and resounding "yes"
- for a number of reasons. See, Gianni is old enough to remember, very clearly, that the MAIN / "iconic" image first published in all / or most of the Italian newspapers was this
:source: http://www.vocidallastrada.org/2016/06/ ... iorno.html
Now, please note that the above image is a (180°) horizontally-flipped / or "mirrored" visual of the alleged crime scene. In fact, this image is - believe it or not - STILL TODAY
(38 years later!) posted on the website of the Corriere Della Sera newspaper. NO ONE has, in 38 years, bothered to rectify this gross "mistake"! And this flipped image is STILL posted on the Corriere (one of the top Italian newspapers) in the context of a recent 'news story' about the investigations of the "polizia scientifica"! :source: http://roma.corriere.it/foto-gallery/cr ... resh_ce-cp
Here is the "ACTUAL / CORRECT view of the Via Fani event"
which was, according to Gianni, released much
That's right: we are asked to believe that whoever first printed that 'original' photograph for public release, "mistakenly" (out of distraction ?) printed the negative film roll 'upside down'. Now, dear Nonho, do you really think that this is a credible hypothesis? That this was just an 'innocent mistake'? That the image of one of the most 'traumatic' events of recent Italian history was - "mistakenly" - printed AND released in a 'mirror-flipped' format?
Moreover, we have these two bizarre images of the Alfetta car - supposedly now rotting in a garage somewhere:

Note that "EXTRA" bullet hole in the top / middle of the rear door (in both of the above images)- which is nowhere to be seen on the "official imagery of the Via Fani event". Here are two images from an official archive site. The EXTRA bullet hole (in the top / middle of the rear door) simply isn't there
Lastly, it's worth mentioning that, according to the official narrative, the kidnapping of Aldo Moro started at 9:02am - and that "11"
was the stated (although controversial) number of those supposed "Red Brigade tewwowists" who attacked his motorcade.
"Il piano venne attuato da 11
persone (come emerse dalle indagini giudiziarie, ma il numero e l'identità dei reali partecipanti è stato messo più volte in dubbio ed anche le confessioni dei brigatisti sono state contraddittorie su alcuni punti)."
More ridiculous still is the media-reported story that "91 shots were fired [by the Red Brigade tewwowists] and 45 of these bullets succesfully hit their targets
" (i.e. the alleged, tragically-killed 5 bodyguards of Aldo Moro).
Later on, the news media told us that Aldo Moro had been shot with 11
Mario Moretti allora sparò alcuni colpi prima con una pistola Walther PPK calibro 9 mm x 17 Corto e poi (dopo che la pistola si era inceppata) con una pistola mitragliatrice Samopal Vzor.61 (nota come Skorpion) calibro 7,65mm con cui sparò una raffica di 11 colpi che perforarono i polmoni del presidente democristiano.
Another media-reported story was that Aldo Moro's corpse (delivered in that red Renault 4 car) had not been found at 12:30 - as initially reported - but at (exactly / "11 in punto"
"Il tutto nasce dal fatto che la telefonata brigatista di rivendicazione dell'omicidio arrivò alle ore 12.30, ma due artificieri, tra i primi ad esser accorsi sul luogo, hanno spostato di un'ora e mezza il momento di ritrovamento del cadavere. Nella loro testimonianza, essi concordano che alle 11.00 in punto
di quella fatidica mattina essi giunsero in Via Caetani e vi trovarono già presenti l'allora ministro dell'interno Francesco Cossiga".http://italiamistero.blogspot.it/2014/12/aldo-moro.html
Those Nutwork clowns sure LOVE their 9 and 11 "pet figures".
