Eddi Marcucci, special surveillance confirmed. “It’s an ideological sentence”

«The Turin exception is reconfirmed in which the prosecutor and the Court do what they want. The decree is horrifying, it traces a disturbing situation for which it is enough to participate in a collective or a demonstration, to be worth the special surveillance. This is an ideological sentence ”, are the words of Maria Edgarda Marcucci on the decision of the Court of Turin which confirms its special surveillance for two years.

The court took up to the last day, of the forty available, to decide on the fate of the young Roman who went to fight in Syria against Isis, and for this reason considered socially dangerous. Since March 17 Eddi has lived with a series of restrictions that limit her not a little in everyday life.


In March, he began serving two years of special surveillance. Because he fought in Syria with the Kurds. But above all because it has become a symbol

Passport delivered, ban on expatriation. Do not go home after nine and do not go out before seven in the morning, do not enter public establishments between six and twenty one, do not participate in public meetings. Among these also the demonstrations, which the Turin prosecutor, headed by the prosecutor Emanuela Pedrotta, brought as “evidence” in these months of hearings. Finally, Eddi must always carry with him a red booklet, the “mandatory card”, in which the police notes, with the permission of the police headquarters, each of his movements.

«It is not the weight of the facts, but whoever commits them that counts, and this is an absurd paradigm. In those pages there is also an evaluation of my temperament, with excerpts in which episodes of Digos members threatening to raise their hands are reported, but that’s okay. Furthermore, the Syrian scenario was completely abandoned, but the process started from there, ”continues Eddi.

In the twenty-five pages that have been delivered to her there is a lot about her person and her intentions, instead of facts, confirming that from the beginning it was a trial against intentions: “There is the profiling of an unstable person – says the girl – So it is legitimate that I do not enter public places, because if I meet someone who does not agree with me, I could attack him ».

Today marks a point of no return, that of Eddi is in fact the first case of special surveillance applied in our country for those who go to fight in war territories. A legacy of the fascist era, which now becomes a dangerous precedent even for anyone who intends to express their dissent.

The mobilizations of hundreds of people on social networks, and the appeals of university professors, cultural personalities and constitutionalists, against a measure that affects important civil rights and freedom of expression are in vain. Now for Eddi we could open an even more tortuous road, turn to the Constitutional Court or point to Europe, with the European Court of Human Rights, which in the past had already expressed many doubts about this type of action.

“It is not clear why he is raging against her – declares Benedetta Argentieri, journalist and director who knows the territories in northern Syria well – The YPGs are not a terrorist group either for Italy or for Europe. There is a double version: when Lorenzo Orsetti fell the institutions celebrated him, but there is silence on Eddi ».

Meanwhile, the situation in northern Syria has reignited again: “In Ain Issa, a free town near Raqqa, it is under attack by jihadist militias,” explains Davide Grasso, also a former Ypg fighter. «Behind there is the direction of the Turkish army which in the last year has not spared even air strikes, nine thousand people are already forced to evacuate for the umpteenth time. All in a deafening silence on the part of Europe ».
