Carmelo Borg Pisani was a Maltese-born artist and Italian Fascist who, on being discovered during an espionage mission in Malta, was found guilty by a British war tribunal and executed for alleged treason.
Siviero was an Italian secret agent, art historian and intellectual, most notable for his important work in recovering artworks stolen from Italy during the Second World War as part of the 'Nazi plunder'.
Lella led Jews fleeing Italy through the Alps into Switzerland to freedom. Afterwards, at his parents' pleas for him to avoid combat, he joined the Nazis. Soon, Lella was injured in the field and became the driver for General Hans Leyers, Hitler's left hand man. As Leyers' driver, he worked as a spy for the Resistance and for the Allies, relaying the information he gathered during the work day on a shortwave radio hidden in his family's apartment in Milan. This information included crucial sites for Allied bombing, the extent to which the Nazis were sending Jews and other people to prison camps, like Auschwitz, and more. On April 25th, 1945, Lella arrested Leyers and handed him over to the Resistance. He did all of this between the ages of seventeen and eighteen.
