At the crime scene with Italy’s best-known forensic pathologist

In her new book Cristina Cattaneo, Italy’s best-known forensic pathologist, explains how anthropology, forensic sciences and medicine tackle crime scenes, laboratory analyses and crime in general in the real world: the skeleton of a woman killed by organized crime because she wanted to change her life; the crowds of unidentified and forgotten dead; the victims of sexual violence; the remains of famous historical figures that reveal the past. Stories of how the passion and determination of doctors, biologists, archaeologists and naturalists contribute to the safeguard of justice, and human rights and to the reconstruction of ancient civilizations.
