Roadmap to Hell: Sex, Drugs and Guns on the Mafia Coast

Barbie Nadeau Interviewed by Teresa Franco

Friday, 5 April 2019

12:00pm

1 hour

Weston Lecture Theatre

£7 - £12.50

Investigative journalist Barbie Nadeau tells the story of modern slavery in Europe and explains how the plight of those most in need is being ignored.

Nadeau followed the weapons trail and met sex-trafficked women trapped by black magic as she set out to expose the way thousands of refugees are caught between Camorra arms dealers and Nigerian drugs gangs on Italy’s coast. She met the nuns trying to save them and found Italian police turning a blind eye to one of the most pressing issues facing Europe today.

Nadeau is a Rome-based American journalist working for Newsweek, The Daily Beast and CNN and covering crime, Italian politics, the Vatican, the refugee crisis and women’s issues. Her book Angel Face about the murder trials of Amanda Knox was turned into a film starring Kate Beckinsale as a journalist based on Nadeau. Here she talks to lecturer and tutor in Italian at Keble College Teresa Franco.

This event is part of Italian day at the festival.
