“A terrible thing happened today. A sentence was extrapolated and it was used for an avalanche of attacks that swept through me from all sides. I have been accused of acquitting men who use violence against women, this betrays my whole life and is the most false that can exist. There is no anger or behavior that can justify femicide or violence against women. This is very clear to me ». Barbara Palombelli says this in a message aired in anticipation of the Stasera Italia program. “I apologize if it wasn’t clear enough, I apologize to the company and to all those who believed that I was that person there, I’m not that person, it’s always me,” he adds.
Later, guest of the television program Fourth Degree, he explains in more detail the meaning of his sentences: «I apologize if someone hearing that sentence thought that I could be an accomplice to someone who commits a crime, but mine was a different matter. Within that transmission and in that context I wanted to introduce the concept that it was necessary to look beyond, to become able to defuse the dynamics that lead to aggression, to defuse them from the first moment. It’s all about prevention before something terrible happens. This is what I try to teach my daughters and that we should all learn. It takes insights and psychologists. It takes the ability to see the signals from the first time and defuse the violence ».
“I have always been on the front line against violence against women – he added -. My personal story says it, I also brought violence to my home. Being placed among the people who justify violence caused me great discomfort. Yesterday we explained how to defuse anger, but no anger can justify a murder ».
