November 1878. Giovanni Passannante sells his jacket and buys a knife, for an attack on the King of Italy. He will report only a few scratches, but Giovanni is sentenced to death, then pardoned and thrown to rot in a dungeon under the sea level, and then imprisoned in a psychiatric prison where he died in 1910.
