Today we have all lost, it is a disgrace, and if I have to pay I ask and expect to be in prison every day of my life. I wasn’t normal, Alessandra’s death is too heavy a burden to carry, more than a life sentence. A normal person doesn’t do what I did, but I felt bad. Do justice because Giovanni Padovani must pay, but keep in mind that it wasn’t me at that moment….”.
