My father Mario Subacchi, who died on 26 May, was a prominent Catholic and well-loved member of the Italian community in Britain for over 60 years. Born in Bardi in the province of Parma, northern Italy, on 16 May 1923, he was the second son of the local blacksmith Carlino Subacchi and his wife Teresa Pelizza. His elder brother, Don Italo Subacchi, was a young cleric murdered by the Nazis at Sidolo in July 1944. Together with two other priests, Don Giuseppe Beotti and Don Francesco Delnevo, Don Italo had the misfortune to encounter an SS Unit of the retreating German army in the small village of Sidolo, near Bardi, Parma. Falsely accused of aiding the partisans and hiding Allied escapees, they were executed by a Nazi firing squad outside the parish church. His other three brothers Pierino, Carlo and Giorgio, were all well known in the region and all predeceased him.
