The murder of Sarah Scazzi was covered by the Italian press obsessively since the opening of the case.
With the national and local press increasingly taking over the task of the police authorities, no one knows yet who was responsible for the murder and three people are currently being investigated after spending several months in jail awaiting trial.
The Italian media circus did not stop here and today the national daily CORRIERE DELLA SERA published a photo gallery of the location where the victim's corpse was found, including footage of the corpse itself.
A further example of how the Italian press clearly oversees ethical codes in pursuit of easy revenue and scandal building.
What do these images add to the public interest? Are they just fueling an unhealthy voyeurism?
But above all, how would you react if the corpse in the well was that of your daughter and the whole nation could see it?
Privacy and human compassion are qualities journalists should take into consideration when handling cases like this: the Italian press has long ago chosen to go the opposite direction.
