The document known as „Aldo Moro’s memoirs“ consists of statements, reflections and the politician’s answers to questions asked by the Red Brigades, the terrorist organization that held him captive for almost two months in the spring of 1978 before murdering him. The original document has never been found, and it is known only in a partial typed transcription – discovered in October 1978, immediately after the joint police-force raid led by general Dalla Chiesa into the brigatists’ den in Via Monte Nevoso in Milan – and in photocopies of autograph manuscripts inserted among copies of his letters and wills, discovered twelve years later in the same place (420 pages of memoirs and letters). This article does not focus on describing the contents of the memoirs, but instead on a correct contextualization of the compilation of these writings, which can be subdivided into thematic and non-thematic but which lack a unitary numerical code. Above all, it tries to answer the persisting questions as to the overall sequence of the copies found in 1990; in other words, if this sequence is the result of a covert intervention on these papers by the State security services after the autumn of 1978, a theory supported by Miguel Gotor in his book „Il memoriale della Repubblica“. In my opinion this theory is unconvincing. Though we cannot rule out a limited manipulation of the papers after their handling by the Red Brigades and the removal of documents, I believe that the sequence of pages was decided on by the Red Brigades, making a distinction between the texts they had typed out (obviously before 1 October 1978) and those that had not been typed by this date, due either to a lack of time, or because it was deemed unnecessary, or both.
