Capture of the partisan Giovanni ‘Rasin’ Cargnello



Capture of the partisan Giovanni ‘Rasin’ Cargnello


During the day, in a quiet street outside a pharmacy, three figures dressed in green or brown are aiming pistols and rifles at two civilians. One civilian is dressed in a red and white striped T-shirt and brown trousers, whilst the other wears a suit and has dropped his briefcase.

Inscriptions read “192”; signed by the author; caption reads “(2) S. GIORGIO DI NOGARO UD. 0 [sic] assistito di persona, alla cattura di Cargnello Giovanni “Rasin”, un caldo pomeriggio, in piazza XXo settembre, da parte di Borsatti, che indossava un giacchettone di cuoio, con in mano una grossa pistola. Accompagnato da altri uomini e partendo, dall’angolo della piazza, lo catturano per “Rasin è la fine, scomparirà, dopo atroci torture, nelle fogne, e nella calce, della famigerata caserma Piave, di Palmanova UD”.
