In the first two months of 1939 forty-five homosexuals from Catania and some towns in its province were arrested and sent to confinement on the island of San Domino, Tremiti, more than 700 km away. The forty-five people from Catania were men between 18 and 54 years of age arrested on charges of “passive pederasty”, a crime against morality and the integrity of the breed. The confinement was supposed to last 5 years.
