REPORTING VIOLENCE: THE VOICES OF THE VICTIMS

Raccontare la violenza: la voce delle vittime

 

May 11 2022, 10.00 am

Aula Magna (Sassari)

On Wednesday 11th of May from 10.00 to 13.00 the Aula Magna of the University of Sassari hosted the inauguration of ‘Maggio della Comunicazione’, organised by the Public Communication and Information Professions Degree Course of the History, Human Sciences and Education Department. 

The opening event, namely Reporting violence: the voices of the victims, was organised in collaboration with the Social Observatory on the Development and Crime in Sardinia (OSCRIM) of the University of Sassari.

The initiative focused both on the study of the violence related social phenomenona, as well as on the development of the testimonies of the victims’ voices: the same voices that frequently fade into the background while the attention switches to the facts and the perpetrators. The red thread that holds together the victims of the crimes and the ongoing war is the result of a multidisciplinary perspective on the use of violence.

After the speech of the Magnifico Rettore of the University of Sassari Gavino Mariotti and the President of the Fondazione di Sardegna Antonello Cabras, the seminar was coordinated by the journalist and sociologist Giacomo Mameli and was also attended by Carlo Colloca from the University of Catania, Romina Deriu, Manuela Pulina, Domenica Dettori, Daniele Pulino, Sara Spanu, Camillo Tidore, Giampiero Branca from the University of Sassari, the Deputy Public Prosecutor of Cagliari Gilberto Ganassi, Mauro Mura, already Public Prosecutor of Cagliari, and the OSCRIM scientific coordinator, Antonietta Mazzette, who presented the works and final considerations.

20/04/2015 CRIME AND TERRITORY. WHAT ARE THE INDICATORS AND WHICH POLICIES FOR?

Quali politiche

Here’s a moment of consideration and debate following the presentation of the intermediate results of the three-year research project funded by the Fondazione Sardegna on the “Sistema informativo e governance delle politiche di intervento e contrasto dei fenomeni criminali” study (L.R. 07/2007). The research project aims to expand the knowledge on changes in crime trends in Sardinia through new methodological approaches which highlight the actual existence of links between those social phenomena typical of different territorial realities and violent crime trends.

This results in the creation of a georeferenced integrated information system based on socio-territorial statistical data and on crime trends, in order to guarantee a constant monitoring of each and every situation supporting the operators involved on every level in the programming and the definition of prevention and contrast innovative policies of criminal phenomena. 

Following the initial speeches of Antonietta Mazzette, coordinator of the research project, and Professor Camillo Tidore, the presentation went on with the participation of Daniele Pulino and Sara Spanu, research fellows, presenting the intermediate results, Luca Pulina, the Computer Engineering researcher of the Department. The event will also be attended by the sociologists Mario Boffi and Matteo Colleoni from the University of Milano-Bicocca, the Sassari Public Prosecutor Gianni Caria, the Police Commissioner of Cagliari Filippo Dispenza, the Police Commissioner of Sassari Pasquale Errico, the journalist Giacomo Mameli, the jurist Giovanni Meloni, and finally Roberto Segatori, sociologist of the University of Perugia.
