Was the victim of a tragic event in the early 1980s: on Wednesday, June 10, 1981, at about 7:00pm, he fell in an Artesian well, 30 centimeters wide and 80 meters deep, in the vicinity of Vermicino, Frascati.Rescuers tried with their greatest efforts to save him: they believe that Alfredino had been trapped 36 meters deep. The construction of a narrow tunnel did not help to succeed in his rescue but instead, it caused the child to fall a further 30 meters. The drama was broadcast on television for 18 hours by RAI unified channels where a large number of the Italian population followed the development of the situation with anxiety: it was esteemed that more than 21 million people had followed the event on television.
