THE STORY - It all began in 1995, when the woman, widowed at the age of 40, accepts her brother's invitation to move in with him and his sister-in-law. The man offers her the room where her elderly parents lived. But after a few years, relations break down. The widow is forced to move to a room near the woodshed, without heating, which can be accessed via an external spiral staircase. From what emerged from the investigations, when the couple was not at home, the widow was locked down with a string tied to a nail on a door that prevented access to the staircase. Only rarely was she allowed to go out to the hairdresser, watched by her sister-in-law, would she be forbidden to go to a doctor and allowed to wash once a month in the laundry tub. She could not speak to anyone and would not even be allowed to use the bathroom. All this for twenty-two years.

DAILY HORROR - Carabinieri major Edgar Pica, who coordinated the investigations, says: 'The turning point came thanks to a report, demonstrating the need to report the violence always and promptly, but above all in this case, as in many other sleepers, of do not turn your head, to listen to the requests for help, even if veiled, from neighbors, acquaintances or simple roommates and report them to the carabinieri, because only by overcoming the wall of silence can a better society be built that guarantees everyone the same rights and put an end to oppression '. The investigation lasted a few months before arriving at the blitz. The victim told everything about her, talking about threats, slaps and beatings suffered, only once she was assured that she would not return to live in that hell. The carabinieri of the Bojano company who carried out the investigation still say in the barracks: 'Despite what you experienced, you were very lucid and precise in the story. The resilience of the woman has been put to the test over the years, but she has overcome her ability to endure the very serious privations suffered, from personal freedom, to that of speech and autonomy, showing a desire to live and get out of this situation, seeking on every occasion to ask for help, with attempts that have remained unheeded for too long ”. According to the Prosecutor's Office, she experienced a 'daily horror'.

NO STOPPING - Now the widow is in a protected facility where she was treated. As for the brother and sister-in-law, they have been reported, but have not been reached by any precautionary measure of deprivation of liberty at the moment due to the inexistence of the danger of repeating the crime. Still unknown, however, the motive for so much fury against the widow and the reasons why she was segregated for 22 years.

THE TALE OF THE VICTIM - The first words of the woman to the carabinieri during the blitz were astonished: “Did you really come here to free me? I don't want to be in this place anymore… ”. And when she was reassured she “she smiled at her for a few moments and then started to cry, a liberating cry”. She confessed to the psychologist appointed by the Prosecutor's Office: “They didn't even let me take a bath… I could wash myself once a month in the laundry tub”. She recalled being “silenced, they were slaps and insults if I spoke without first being given permission. I ate what they gave me, requests made orally from the window… ”. As for the fact that it was without heating, 'in winter, to protect myself from the cold, I used blankets ... Then I wore the clothes I had with me when I moved. The television? No, it was not there'.

MAYOR - Eliseo Castelli, mayor of Casalciprano, tells Corriere della Sera that he is 'reassured by the fact that this story has emerged and that this woman has been given her freedom' and says he is proud that 'our social services have prepared the report that allowed the investigations to be officially launched '. On the segregated woman he recalls: “I have been mayor for 12 years but I remember seeing her only a few times, as a young man. Then I didn't know anything about her anymore. Who should have reported any problems? Perhaps the general practitioner ”. But he does not know how to explain the behavior of her brother and his wife: “Two affable, cordial people: I must say that if they had told me what I later learned I would never have believed it”.
