Chapter Summary

Dr Giorgio Sinigaglia was the Chief Surgeon of the Civil Hospitals in Brescia, where he lived on Via Leonardo da Vinci 14. He was born in Bozzolo (Mantua) on 20 May 1886. Sinigaglia became a member of the Fascist Party in 1932, and three of his unnamed four children (aged 14, 12, and 10) were enrolled in the Fascist youth organizations. The bishop of Brescia, Giacinto Tredici, wrote a warm letter to the Vatican Secretariat of State, asking him to support Sinigaglia's application for "discrimination." He highlighted in it Dr Sinigaglia's widely recognized honesty and lack of sectarianism in his work as physician. Cardinal Maglione forwarded his request, accompanied by a copy of the doctor's application to Tacchi Venturi. The latter immediately interceded in a letter written to Secretary Le Pera. In reply, the government informed the Jesuit that Sinigaglia's application was being investigated.
