Ugly negro, I'll kill you, go back to your country. These are just a few offenses of Agitu Ideo Gudeta, a 40-year-old girl of Ethiopian descent who is known in the mountains of Trentino Alto Adige as the queen of the happy goats because of her integration story (recently also told by the New York Times, ed). Arrived in Italy when she was 18, to study Sociology at the University of Trento, she returned to her country, in Addis Ababa, from where she was forced to flee in 2010 for the government's threats led by the Liberation Front of the Tigr (Tplf), in power since 1991.

I managed to free myself by kicking him and I ran home. I called the carabinieri and I condemned what happened, even managed to photograph him while I dropped the wheels of the car. The violence did not stop at her: I found one of my dead goats, with a breast removed from a cutting weapon, she explained.
Procura Trento opens research
