A tutti i costi

Chiara D’Ambros | Rai Radio3

“A tutti i costi” is a series of 5 episodes about work and health, about invisible matter and polluted waters, about contaminated land and compromised lives. The voices of Miteni’s workers – a chemicals factory – with that of a doctor, activists’ and mothers’ , lead the listener through a sound journey set near Vicenza, Veneto. One of the Italian regions that, since the ‘60s, has known a tremendous economic development, in many regards. An area of the country that has become wealthy at a very high cost for the environment and to health too. With this story, and in particular today, in times of Covid-19, a timeless question goes back to being pressing: work at all costs? To the detriment of environmental damage and of health?

A policeman turns sexual predator, and a group of fearless women from around the world band together to bring him to justice. Across continents and years, they launch their own investigation with a team of Italian journalists and trigger a trial unlike any seen in Italian court. Hosted by investigative reporter Natasha Del Toro, this ten-episode, immersive true crime series examines the trust we place in the sharing economy and the power that a simple checkmark or digital review can hold over our lives. This is not a story about victims this is a story about women who fight back.

The search for truth, hindered a great while by false leads, tells an accurate story: we are not talking about a mob murder, rather than a murder carried out by mafia and the state apparatus on the eve of the massacres season of the 1990s. The audio-documentary is dedicated to Giacoma Augusta Schiera’s memory, mother of the murdered officer, who died in Palermo on February 28, 2019.
