Sesto San Giovanni was considered and still is, a fortress of the Italian left. Since the beginning of the past century its working class has had a tradition of fights for trade Union rights first, the Resistence to the Fascist Regime, until the striks of the so called Autunno Caldo in 1969. The essay shows how at the beginning of the '70, in Sesto, were born radical minorities that chose the armed fight. Walter Alasia, a young student in Sesto, from a working class family, was one of the young protagonist of this movement. His life and death is here considered as a metaphor of the armed movement in Italy and of the reasons why a minorities of young people made such a choice.
