Federazione Anarchica Informale
The group came to prominence in 2003 when two parcel bombs were sent to the home of former prime minister Romano Prodi who was then president of the European Commission. At the time the group was thought to have less than 300 members in Italy.
In 2005 bombs were detonated in Carabinieri stations in Genoa and Milan and at a courthouse in Ostia, however there were no casualties. In May 2005, the organisation claimed responsibility for parcel bombs sent to police stations in Turin and Lecce and to the director of an association catering for the needs of illegal immigrants in a detention centre in Modena.
In 2009 the group a bomb comprised of 2kg of dynamite was planted by the group was found at Bocconi University in Milan.
In December 2010 the group claimed responsibility for two parcel bombs delivered to the embassies of Chile, Switzerland and Greece in Rome. Their statement read, "We have decided to make our voice heard with words and deeds. Let us destroy the system of domination... Long live anarchy."
In general the group uses fairly unsophisticated bombs; they do have links, however, with anarchist groups in other countries. The December 2010 parcel bomb sent to the Greek Embassy, for example, was sent at the behest of Greek anarchists.
