This is Licio Gelli, born in 1919.
During the 1930s, Licio Gelli volunteered for the “Black Shirts”, a force sent by Mussolini to Spain in support of Franco's rebellion.
Subsequently, Gelli became a liaison officer between the Italian government and the Third Reich, with contacts including Göring.
Gelli participated in the Italian Social Republic with Giorgio Almirante, founder of the Neo-Fascist Italian Social Movement (MSI).
After the World War, Gelli founded his own textile and importing company. In 1981, Gelli was revealed as being the re-founder and so called “Venerable Master“ of the clandestine Masonic Lodge, Propaganda Due (P2).
Gelli became a liaison officer between the Italian government and the Third Reich, with contacts including Göring.
"Although Gelli's story is unknown to Americans, Italians and other Europeans understand his connections and power. It is story worth telling since he was seated and the right hand of Reagan, indicating the power he wielded even in the U.S." Greg Szymanski
P2 was (or still is, now named P4) a “state within a state” or – better to say – a “shadow government”. The lodge had among its members prominent journalists, members of parliament, industrialists, and military leaders –including Silvio Berlusconi, who later became Prime Minister of Italy.
In “Della Tramutatione metallica” appears the image of a mutilated Mercurius.
Mercurius is in the stage of a bath where the cutting off of hands is necessary for transformation to occur.
The victim of the vengeance was the dead body of Juan Perón. Peron was thrice elected President of Argentina, serving from June 1946 to September 1955, when he was overthrown in a coup d'état, and then from October 1973 until his death in July 1974.
In July 1987, 13 years after his death, Perón's hands had been removed from his tomb along with his army cap, sword and a poem written to him by his last wife, Isabel. The dismemberment had been done with an electric saw.
In alchemical theory (which has deeply influenced the rites of Free Masonry) it refers to the state of putrefaction or decomposition, which makes it equally applicable to describe a state of dismemberment and punishment for sins committed.
