In Italy the press is free but hundreds of journalists are under attack with threats, intimidation and specious lawsuits.
This is the Italian paradox examined under various aspects on July 2 at the Senate of the Republic of Italy during the international conference “Protect who reports inconvenient truths” organized by Ossigeno per l’Informazione in collaboration with the European Center for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF).
This 8 minutes video is realized by Federica Delogu and Alberto Spampinato in two versions (Italian and English). It has been presented on October 8, 2015 in Leipzig, on October 21 in Lecce and on November 12 at the Festival of the Cinema of Human Rights in Napoli.
The video presents data about Italian situation and, in a nutshell, opinions of 15 participants of the conference: the Italian ministry of Foreign Affairs Paolo Gentiloni, the president of the Senate Pietro Grasso, the senator Sergio Zavoli (Ossigeno), the mp Claudio Fava (Antimafia), Antonio Martusciello (AGCOM), Fabrizio Carotti (FIEG), Luigi Ciotti (Libera), William Horsley (AEJ, London), Radomir Licina (SEEMO, Belgrado), Alberto Spampinato (Ossigeno), Giuseppe Giulietti (Articolo21), Raffaele Lorusso (FNSI), Enzo Iacopino (OdG), Ulrike Schmidt (OSCE, Wien), Lutz Mukke (ECPMF Leipzig).
