Tiburzi, the bandit from Tuscany

According to some legends and a poem by an anonymous, Domenico Tiburzi, was the bandit who lived in the Maremma during 19th century.

There are both supporters of this theory, pointing the finger to him as responsible of 20 homicides, since he was very cruel, and the defenders, who, even today, keep saying he was nothing but a romantic hero who was helping the poor people by stealing from the rich ones.

Tiburzi’s mission, as some supporters call his action, ended on 23rd October 1896, when the Italian police stopped him at night, after having set a trap in the houseof the Franci family who hosted him.
