Federico Aldrovandi died in Ferrara, Italy at 6 am on September 25, 2005 during a police control. The event sparked a judicial investigation that was initially meant to be closed quickly, and a first trial, that ended with convictions for the four officers involved. “I decided to stop and reflect, for once, upon Federico’s death. It was worth telling the story and not the news. I saved the original video cassettes, my notes, all those disposable tools that make today’s journalist a person always in a hurry, prey to false (and hysterical) movement.” [Filippo Vendemmiati]
