The Colombian people voted “no” on the referendum held on the October 2, casting new doubts on the future of the country. In light of this unpredicted result, it may be useful to recall the most noteworthy phases of the period of la violencia, a crucial moment in the foundation of FARC. Indeed, in the decade between the beginning of the presidential mandate of Ospina and the signature of the Frente Nacional, the reader may find the characterizing traits of both the ideology of the infamous guerrilla group and the roots of the social fracture that is still affecting the country.
