Italy still doesn't have the crime of torture in its criminal code, despite strong condemnation from courts and human rights activists for the severe abuses that occurred during the Genoa G8.
The death of young protester Carlo Giuliani during the Genoa G8 summit in 2001 opened a wound in Italian society that seems impossible to heal.
That's the total amount Italy will pay to its many victims of torture. How long shall we wait until a law on torture is approved?
Two inmates in an Italian prison were thrown into solitary confinement, stripped of their clothes, denied food and sleep, and beaten.
After condemnation by the Court of Human Rights, Italy appears close to adding the crime of torture into its penal code. An Italian NGO's petition in support of this has already gathered nearly 50,000 signatures.
