On March 16, 2003, Milan is once again the theater of a political murder: Dax, a young anti-fascist comrade grown up in the Milanese suburbs who was involved in the squatter scene of the neighborhood called Ticinese, was stabbed to death by three right-wing extremists. A few hours later, the comrades who arrived at the ER where he had been taken were clobbered by the police. That night is remembered as the Milan's Notte Nera and it marked a sign in the lives of an entire generation of young comrades, engraving in their personal and political stories the urgency of remembrance. Since then, the Dax affair has become a collective heritage, in Italy and Europe: it is a living memory that, year after year, has seen the streets of Milan filled with those who want to keep such memory alive. And all this continues to contaminate the most recent struggles. Through the voices of friends, comrades, and Dax's indefatigable mother, we recall together what happened that night and the political antecedents of it: we move among judicial affairs and those personal affects that twenty years later are still able to powerfully inspire new generations. This project supports the 130000 campaign.
