On April 2, 2019, 70 Roma citizens (of whom 33 children and 22 women, some in an advanced state of pregnancy) arrive in the Torre Maura district of Rome to be housed in the reception center in Via dei Codirossoni. Their arrival sparked the protest of some inhabitants, supported by a group of CasaPound and Forza Nuova militants. In the late afternoon, some Forza Nuova militants threw the bread for the Roma on the ground and trampled on it, shouting racist slogans. The municipal administration then decides to move the Roma group elsewhere. Even the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) intervened in the Torre Maura’s affair. In the following days the Prosecutor’s Office opens a file for “incitement to racial hatred and apology for fascism”. Following the investigation carried out by the Police in Rome, the investigators filed a report where 41 people, including residents and members of the extreme right, were reported in various capacities to the judicial authorities. The Torre Maura’s affair is relevant both from a media point of view and with reference to the living conditions of the Roman suburbs, which is often the scenario of real urban revolts against the most vulnerable population groups.
