On 14th September, a nineteen-year-old Italian boy whose family comes from Burkina Faso, was chased and killed with bars by the owners of a bar, father and son, who accused him of having stolen biscuits. Notwithstanding they shouted against him racist abuse during the attack, the aggressors were arrested for voluntary murder, but without racist discrimination as aggravating circumstance. This case is an extreme consequence of the climate of hostility against foreigners that characterizes some big Italian cities, and stirred up great indignation in the public.
