81,532. The head of the Lodge [P2] Licio Gelli was a militant anti-communist with long-standing links to the CIA. He was also one of Aldo Moro’s bitterest enemies.

Gelli, head of the P2 lodge and working for the secret service, is reported to have said just afterwards, The hardest part has been done.

81,534. Moro knew there would be strong opposition to his policy. But he could see no alternative to closer relations with the communists. The Communist Party had become the second most powerful political force in the country. It was demanding indispensable social reforms, and to do so was looking for closer links with the Christian Democrats under Aldo Moro. But those opposed to this strategy did not remain inactive.

84,380. It became clear that P2 was not just a Masonic Order but a CIA-funded parallel government. The list of members of the lodge was found in a raid on Licio Gelli’s house in 1981. Among the 962 names were the heads of all three Intelligence Services, forty-eight MPs, industrialists, bankers, media moguls, journalists, civil servants, judges, military officials, and Sylvio Berlusconi.

The dubious suicide of God’s banker: there is one secret society who some conspiracy theorists believe are behind this mysterious death ... of Roberto Calvi, who was a member of the defunct Masonic Lodge P2 ... On the 18th June 1982 Blackfriars Bridge in London became the focus of a murder mystery that put Freemasons in the line of fire. A discovery is made at dawn: the discovery of a well-dressed body found hanging under the bridge. His wallet is stuffed full of cash. A fake passport and his pockets are full of bricks. (P2 Lodge & Black Ops & Assassination) Freemasons on Trial
61,371. This was one of the most high-profile deaths of the twentieth century. Some believe that freemasonry stems from stone-masonry, and for that reason some people thought that the bricks found in Roberto Calvi’s pockets were a possible link to freemasonry. And there is London itself which is the spiritual home of Freemasonry. Where the idea of this modern secret brotherhood was born. Then there’s Blackfriars Bridge, just a Tube stop from the Grand Lodge of England and within sight of St Paul’s Cathedral. Built by masons under the supervision of the brotherhood’s greatest architect, Sir Christopher Wren. Roberto Calvi was a member of P2, a renegade Masonic Lodge. And Friars was apparently a nickname P2 called themselves. London police soon ruled his death a suicide, a desperate man on the run. His life collapsing around him. It could have been possible that Roberto Carlo chose to end it all: but to his son Carlo it all didn’t add up. (P2 Lodge & Black Ops & Assassination) ibid.
61,372. These allegations whether true or not eventually led the authorities to become suspicious and the scandal was derailed. P2 was officially shut down in the summer of 1981 after police raided Gelli’s home and found a list of P2 members. This had drastic consequences for Roberto Calvi and ultimately lead to his downfall.

61,373. On the 18th of June 1982 Blackfriars Bridge in London became the focus of a murder mystery that put the Masons in the line of fire. A grisly discovery is made at dawn: the body of a well-dressed man is found hanging under the bridge. His wallet stuffed full of cash along with a fake passport and pockets filled with bricks. The body was identified as Roberto Calvi. Calvi was the chairman of Banco Ambrosiano, Italy’s largest private bank with close ties to the Vatican. The tabloid press exposed a mass of scandal and financial embezzlement. Calvi was also a member of P2, a clandestine quasi-Masonic Lodge run by a powerful Italian financier Lichio Gelli, a former envoy of Mussolini’s. (P2 Lodge & Black Ops & Assassinations) Lost Symbol: Fact or Fiction
61,374. This is the body of God’s banker. At 7:30 a.m. June 18th 1982 his body was found swinging from Blackfriars Bridge. The cause of death – asphyxiation by hanging ... Roberto Calvi was the man people called God’s banker. Now technically he was more like the Pope’s banker but that doesn’t sound quite as impressive. Anyway, he earned his rather grand title by becoming head of Italy’s largest private bank, and more importantly, getting mixed up in the Vatican’s complicated finances. Now he was a powerful and well-connected man. So why did he end up hanging from scaffolding here under Blackfrairs Bridge in London? Calvi wasn’t just connected to the Vatican. He also had links with the Mafia and Italian Freemasons. He had a lot to hide and a lot of secrets to tell. (P2 Lodge & Black Ops & Assassinations & Vatican) Simon Reeve, Conspiracy: The Pope and the Mafia Millions
61,375. Everything really started to go wrong for Calvi when the debts at his bank spiralled out of control. It got worse: Calvi was arrested for currency fraud. During his time inside he started to talk. He committed the ultimate banker’s crime and began spilling his clients’ secrets, With his bank facing financial collapse Calvi now had every reason to flee Italy ... The Vatican, the Mafia, the Italian freemasons, he knew all their darkest secrets and was threatening to expose them. (P2 Lodge & Black Ops & Murder: Calvi & Vatican) ibid.

Calvi’s family found it hard to accept the original Inquest verdict of Suicide. A second Inquest returned an Open verdict ... There were no struggle marks on Calvi’s body. (P2 Lodge & Black Ops & Murder: Calvi & Vatican) ibid.
84,381. There was no shortage of suspects. When Calvi fled to London he took a briefcase along with him ... It was full of incriminating documents linking Banco Ambrosiano to all sorts of shady dealings. And the contents were said to be so important to Calvi that he even slept with the briefcase; he never let it out of his sight. But after Calvi’s death the briefcase was nowhere to be found. (P2 Lodge & Black Ops & Assassinations & Vatican) ibid.
84,382. Then in a bizarre twist the briefcase surfaced on Italian television. The contents were poured over live on Italian national TV. It had all sorts of interesting stuff in it – Calvi’s wallet, his driving licence, even a false passport. But by this stage of course most of the incriminating documents had vanished. So could Calvi really have been killed for the contents of his briefcase? (P2 Lodge & Black Ops & Murder: Calvi & Vatican) ibid.
