Chapter Summary

"I am a son of Jewish parents." With these words Colonel Paolo Uzielli began his application letter for "discrimination," of which a summary is found in Tacchi Venturi's archive. Colonel Uzielli began his military career very early, following the example of his paternal uncle, Professor Gustavo Uzielli, who had been a Garibaldi veteran and a volunteer in the 1899 war. Bishop Gioacchino Bonardi of Florence recommended Uzielli's case in a letter to Tacchi Venturi, in which he described the colonel as "a good and righteous person, a great officer and a true gentleman." No governmental reply to his request of "discrimination" is extant in the Jesuit's archive, and other sources do not provide information about his fate.
