Abstract

In Italy this phenomenon gained a huge media interest, above all because of some really bloody news stories. All this brought to an over exposure of femicide cases and to an increasing of social distress, with possible distortortion of the objectivity of this phenomeon itself. The Authors, thanks to a statistical analysis, examine all the femicides occurred in Milan from 2002 to 2013, taken from the Legal Medicine Archive of the University of Milan, using a multidisciplinary approach (criminological, forensic and psychological one) and focusing mainly on how those crimes born and how they criminologically develop. Important aspects such as injury methods, where the crimes took place, the victims’ characteristics (and, where possible, the authors’ones) will be analyzed, and a specific attention will be paied to all the personal histories of the ones involved, to evaluate this type of crime, both from a phenomenological and etiological point of view. All the data collected will be compared to National and International specialist Literature.
