Contacting terrorist individuals in Rome, Italy?

It appears I will be spending five days in Rome, Italy around March 14-18.
The trip itself is for undergraduate research and a short overseas experience. I will be giving a 50 minute presentation on my return. The experience is the primary reason for the trip, with most if not all the research being done beforehand.
Though it is far off, I want to get some preparations started. My research will revolve around the "Years of Lead" in Italy, specifically the armed leftist organizations that came about. Some of these groups seem to still exist, albeit in temporally-altered ways, such as the Red Brigade/Brigate Rosse. Others seem to have fully disbanded such as Prima Linea. What I would like to do is get into contact with people who have participated or are currently participating within these terrorist groups.
I'm doing this for research, as a student. Everything will be collected anonymously for academic purposes. I'm in the process of getting in touch with relevant professors and any contacts I have in Italy as a supplement and backup, but I was curious if there was any hope in achieving my wishes from the second paragraph. Might these current terrorist organizations have a civilian front-end I could get into contact with?
