What is the course about?
L'obiettivo è quello della ricostruzione di delitti irrisolti più o meno noti e di vicende ritenute poco chiare. Attraverso interviste a personaggi famosi e ricostruzioni storiche ci occuperemo dei casi criminali di maggiore rilevanza mediatica e spesso connessi a temi della cronaca recente italiana come Tangentopoli, la mafia, la politica. Vicende, come quella dell'assassinio di Giovanni Falcone per mano di Cosa Nostra, avvolte ancora in un alone di mistero.
