‘Non Sono Stato Io’ A talk by Gherardo Colombo 

Gherardo Colombo was one of the Italian leading public prosecutors. In his 33 years long career he handled some of the country’s most important trials. Since his resignation in 2007, Colombo has been engaging in the area of education: his activities include meeting students from primary schools to universities to explain the role everyone has in the promotion of a culture of lawfulness.

Colombo is convinced that justice involves much more than punishment for the infraction of rules. However, a model of justice as a source of equality and rights cannot work if the relationship between citizen and rules is unbalanced. In his talk, Colombo will explore this important issue, with special reference to “Mani Pulite”, a nationwide Italian judicial investigation held in the 1990s which uncovered a system of political corruption expanding outside the world of ‘rulers’ into those of industry and police.

 This Talk will take place in English , Its free admission and everyone is welcome!
