“There are new evaluation topics, in our opinion very important …”
Alberto Stasi’s lawyer recently explained in an interview the request to review the process which frankly comes unexpected.
In 2017, the Court of Cassation declared the extraordinary appeal filed by the Stasi defense inadmissible, after rejecting the appeal in 2015 and after the 16-year sentence of the Assize Court of Appeal in 2014.
Everyone, even those who follow the news cases less assiduously, were affected by this crime that ripped apart the holiday atmosphere in August 2007.
A quiet village, a simple girl, a banal bicycle, and the house: the place where everyone feel safer, suddenly filled with horror. An inexplicable horror that conveyed concern, indignation and a long series of questions.
I found answers and precise explanations in the book by Gian Luigi Tizzoni, which tells in a simple way the succession of events that represent ten years of life for him.
So much so that I personally had the feeling of reading pages of a diary, rather than cold legal exposures.
The book begins on August 18, 2007: not the date of the murder, but the day of Chiara’s funeral, when the lawyer Tizzoni still had not received the task of protecting the Poggi family. And it is divided into six chapters, as many as the degrees of judgment.
“I think they killed a person, but maybe she is alive, that’s how Stasi described the death of the girl he was in love with.”
These are words of Gian Luigi Tizzoni, as could be your words or mine. It is not the story of a lawyer, it is the story of a man, “of a long journey, of a real odyssey.”
I recommend it: for example, despite having always followed the story, I finally got to understand the issue of the pedal and to rearrange exactly all the various pieces of the puzzle, or rather, to use the words of the author again:
“Each clue integrated perfectly with the others, like mosaic tiles, creating an overall picture …”
in case, then, if you want, you can tell me what is the picture you see.
