Title

Alfonso ‘Liviano’ Zamparo being tortured

Description

A screaming naked man is suspended across a cell by ropes tied around his wrists, looped over a hook on the wall, and his ankles, looped through the bars of a window. The rope threaded through the window is held by a uniformed figure. A bucket is visible in the corner of the cell. The walls of the cell are flecked with blood stains.

Inscriptions read “195”; signed by the author; caption reads “PALMANOVA 19 Dicembre 1944 – 17 Febbraio 1945, “Liviano” dottor Alfonso Zamparo dell’Osoppo, impiccato per 5 ore alle celle No 1 completamente nudo, dal suo racconto: fui aganciato e spinto verso l’entrata della cella, la corda passò sopra la porta e fissata all’esterno, sul catenaccio, cosi appeso coi piedi alti sul pavimento, un calvario, calci pugni vergate, colpi di moschetto che mi lacerarono la carne, mi lanciarono a dosso secchi di acqua gelata, e calda, e bere dense soluzioni di sale. Mi spedirono a Dakau [Dachau] il 24 Febbraio”.
