ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Roberto Adinolfi of Ansaldo Nucleare has been shot in Genoa. Roberto Adinolfi is the head of Ansaldo Nucleare, part of aerospace and defense company Finmeccanica. Officials tells news that Adinolfi was shot exiting his Genoa home by two anarchists on bikes. He reportedly suffered a single gunshot to the leg.
Adinolfi’s shooting has not been linked to any group. And no organization has yet taken credit for the attack. Local news, however, claims that anarchists might be to blame.
