“The right to know”. Conference with Domenico Quirico

Diritti e Rovesci. The protection of human rights in a changing world

Curated by Le Marche Region Ombudsman and the Regional Legislative Assembly.
Presented by Francesca Alfonsi, journalist.

One of the great Italian war correspondents will tell about himself and the difficulties to narrate the conflicts on site. From Sudan to Syria, from Libya to the Horn of Africa, Domenico Quirico observes and narrates risking his own life. In 2011, he was kidnapped in Libya during the civil war that brought to the end of Gaddafi’s regime. In 2013, he was kidnapped in Syria by one of the several fighting factions: an experienced correspondent, very delicate and careful.

Domenico Quirico is Head of Service for Foreign Affairs at La Stampa. He has written several books. The last one is “Esodo. Storia del nuovo millennio” (Exodus. The new millennium history).
