The events in Peschiera del Garda are just the latest episode in a phenomenon that is growing exponentially in our country: that of crime involving even the very young, often of foreign origin, who are increasingly the protagonists of maxi brawls, assaults and vandalism.
In the new episode of "The Interview," SILVIA ROBERTO meets GIOVANNI GIACALONE, an expert on crime and terrorism, Researcher at the Centro Studi Machiavelli, with whom we discuss where the phenomenon of crime originates and how it has developed in our society, the scene of sudden social, economic and political changes. And then the increasingly overbearing presence of baby gangs, the role of families and schools, the outsized use of social media and the psychological impact these have on young people. And finally, preventive controls, harsher penalties, and safety in our streets.
