Giuseppe Valerio “Giusva” Fioravanti (born 28 March 1958) is an Italian terrorist, who, with Francesca Mambro, was a leading figure in a far right terrorist group Nuclei Armati Rivoluzionari (“Armed Revolutionary Nuclei” or NAR). Fioravanti appeared in films and television from a young age, and in his early teens was the most famous child in Italy. He and Mambro were fugitives wanted for terrorist offences by their early twenties, they spent a further period on the run while wanted for the Bologna bombing. Both were captured after gunfights with police. Although Fioravanti, Mambro and a third NAR mamber were convicted of the bombing, there were those who thought that a higher level of the conspiracy was never uncovered. Fioravanti and Mambro admit carrying out terrorist murders, but have always denied any involvement in the Bologna station bomb.

The late seventies were a time of political violence in the form of bombings, assassinations, and street warfare between rival militant factions. Fioravanti was one of a number of teenage activists in Rome who saw the legal far right political party as betraying them though inaction in the face of attacks by political opponents and the police. Influenced by leftist movements, a large group of far right youths that included Fioravanti and his close associates moved from street-fighting to terrorism. Unlike their left wing equivalents they emphasised personal qualities like spontaneity and willingness to fight, even in a lost cause, over political objectives. Fioravanti had said “About defeat we never cared, we are a generation of losers, always on the side of the defeated.” Italy was seen as a 'sick', unjust and repressive state. In a 2005 interview, Fioravanti characterized this former rationale for terrorist activities as 'total stupidity', and said 'exultation and rage' in his milieu had fed a collective delusion.
