The Prati homicides

Two weeks ago we were surprised and shocked by the news of the triple homicide that took place in the heart of Rome: three prostitutes brutally murdered in Prati, an affluent neighborhood a stone’s throw from the Vatican and Rai (national TV studios). Two articles that appeared within a few days on the website “Loci Communes” days deal with this tragedy and highlight how prostitution is a dark and dramatic reality that must be denounced and fought for what it is: a form of slavery that takes away the dignity of human beings from the women trapped in it.
