  Famous people of Rome

Between September 8 and 10, 1943, in Rome, we fight in various areas. The dead are hundreds (twenty-eight women). The most important conflicts erupt at the bridge of the Magliana, at the Montagnola, on the Via Laurentina, at the Ostiense and, finally, at Porta San Paolo where, on the morning of the 10th, the last battle is lit, which propagates in various quarters. Thus ends the first valiant chapter of the Roman resistance; it opens the period of the Nazi occupation for the city. Domenica Cecchinelli is the mother of five children. She lives in Montagnola. During the clashes of those days the people of the Roman township support the military and endeavour to take shelter and treat the wounded. On the evening of September 9th, Domenica, heedless of the German threats, rescues a burned tanker from the Aries division. Some sources report that she was found, while she is laboriously pulling out from the turret of a crawler the young man. The woman is riddled of blows.
