Serena Gentilhomme, Ce que ça fait de tuer

Rome, 2016. Two thirty-somethings, Marco Prato and Manuel Foffo are celebrating and in the midst of their excesses, have a new idea: torture and kill, to see how it feels. A young prostitute is lured into the ambush, drugged and subjected to these macabre impulses. The next day, one of the young men will attempt suicide, the other will go to the police…
Beyond the gratuitousness of this sordid crime, the transalpine press is passionate about the profile of the two murderers, young men from good families and without history. The testimonies of fathers in television shows with large audiences, the silence of mothers, the reactions of the victim’s relatives are as much the subject of this text which tells us about a nihilist youth ready to do anything to feel alive.

Strong points

A gripping account of the news story and its media treatment.

A little-known story that testifies to a certain nihilism of a golden youth.

Press

“A scenario worthy of a thriller that has plunged the police and the Italian press into confusion.”
