(by Silvia Mancinelli) – “It hurt me, very badly, to be denied permission to act in the theater. A permission that certainly wasn’t a prize but was part of my re-education process, was intimately connected to the issues I was working on with educators and psychologists. The show was about parenthood, denied motherhood. ” Martina Levato, the woman sentenced to 19 years and 6 months, together with her boyfriend Alexander Boettcher and their friend and accomplice Andrea Magnani for the acid attacks in Milan in 2014, speaks to Adnkronos. The Supreme Court denied the woman , a recluse in the San Vittore prison where she gave birth to her son who is now 6 years old, the possibility of leaving the prison to recite at the “Piccolo” in the “Decameron of women”. “The theater is not my future, but it is part of my re-education path, considering the issues dealt with, I thought I deserved that possibility – he explains – It is absolutely the fault of the mediaticity of the story”. “The denial, then points out the defense lawyer Alessandra Guarini,” dates back to a request in 2019. Today Martina has finished her observation path and we believe that the summary reports reflect the commitment made in this long journey “.” On me – Levato urges – there has been a particular fury, perhaps because women are expected to respect life. The woman is the generator of life and for this she is not forgiven for violence “. Yet, she assures me,” I do not feel like a victim of justice. No, the victims are others “. Martina Levato spends her days in prison” working and studying, I am about to finish my degree course in Economics and Marketing, all I need is the thesis – she continues – Behind the bars I have found my freedom. Thanks to the support received, I was able to find myself and reflect on my actions. “Deeply changed, grown up, she swears she is repentant:” There is never an end to repentance – she says – it is a long and complex path. But I don’t think about those ‘days of madness’, I rework the episodes in my rehabilitation path but I always think of the victims, not a day goes by when I don’t think about them. I apologized to him several times, even in court “. But what drives a girl in her early twenties at the time of the facts to scrape with acid the ex-boyfriend of the high school, Pietro Barbini, and Stefano Savi, to try to emasculate Antonio Margarito, groped to scar Giuliano Carparelli ‘the handsome and lucky’ who is saved by opening the umbrella? “I was in a state of psychological submission – says Martina Levato – The judges also recognized it. But I have no fault of Savi’s attack, I was not even present on the spot “. She, who declares herself overexposed compared to Alexander Boettcher and Andrea Magnani, underlines that she addressed them,” at the hearing, the appeal to tell the truth “. But the appeals are only to the boyfriend and friend:” I have never asked for acts of clemency – he explains – but a fair treatment yes “.” When I get out of prison I will take my life back into my hands – he concludes – I don’t know what I am he will be waiting out there, but when the law allows me, I will certainly look for my son. The state prevented me from seeing him, but I have never abandoned him. “
