Interview with Ilaria Cucchi
a year after Stefano Cucchi's death
by Mimmo Rubino
October 22nd 2009: Stefano Cucchi dies. 7 days earlier he had been arrested for drug possession.
Up to the time of arrest Stefano is in good health conditions, but at the trial his face shows clear signs of violence. Later he is moved from jail to the prison hospital.
In all likelihood his death is the consequence of the acts of violence he suffered during the arrest, these acts were committed by the people who should have taken care of and healed him: Government, police, doctors.
Stefano's family decide to publish pictures of the corpse and those photos end on the cover of newspapers and magazines. They prove what happened. On October 21st, a year after Stefano's death, I interviewed his sister, Ilaria, asking her to talk about those photos.
