Luigi Galleani

One hundred years ago, an Italian immigrant, reviled by the Justice Department as the most dangerous man in America, lived in Barre. Although a fugitive, his neighbors found him generous, public-spirited, and a strident advocate for the working-class. Arguably, the most important anarchist in America in the early 20th century, Luigi Galleani came to central Vermont in 1903 to evade an arrest warrant and stayed to earn recognition as an incendiary voice in revolutionary thought through the publication of his radical newspaper, Cronica Sovversiva.
