Italian lawyer who openly expressed his solidarity with Jews and his opposition to racial laws. He was registered in the files of the police as a probable political subversive and anti-fascist. His profession soon led him to take up the defence of a Jewish client arrested by Pietro Koch.
In order to free his client, Basile sought intercession with his colleague, lawyer Augusto Trinca Armati. Knowing the faithful relations between Trinca and Koch, Basile asked him to meet him. Trinca prepared a letter of introduction written in German, in which however it was written, "This is the famous lawyer Guido Vittoriano Basile, infamous antifascist. Arrest him!." Basile went to Villa Triste to meet Koch and when Koch opened the envelope he was immediately arrested. In a gesture of rebellion, Basile threw the inkwell on the desk into Koch's face.
Basile was first tortured at Villa Triste and consequently imprisoned at the San Vittore prison. He was then deported to Mauthausen concentration camp on 21 February 1944, where he died on 27 March 1944.
