When on Monday noon, around 6 p.m., a friend of the couple who lived in that house—a mezzanine house on Goethe Road—appeared to feed the cat, she encountered a stranger.

“I was on the beach in Liguria – he says -, within a quarter of an hour I left and upon my arrival there was still a forensic scientist in my house doing the surveys.” With the apartment turned into a dump, Giuseppe spent the night with his parents, leaving the light on.
“When I returned the next morning, he says, I saw from outside another light lit.” At the door of the house, Giuseppe met the thief, took a picture of him, they took bad words and the man ran away again. “The police came back an hour later, they saw the photo, and they recognized him.”
