A decade later, verdict of science on causes of death of Cucchi does not yet have a conclusion of consensus. But courts mselves have attempted to establish truth.

But confession of a witness, last year, produced a roll-over: five carabinieri are now sitting in front of judge, accused of felony murder –when attacker wants to cause injury but ends up causing death, abuse of power and false testimony.
“in Addition to pursuit of justice, that, in end it seems well on its way, I always left with doubt of knowing how he was, what he thought in those moments,” adds Ilaria Cucchi.
