The comment of Zaniolo
After the theft, Francesca Costa took it out on Instagram: “Every violence, whatever it is, deprives the person of his freedom. That’s how I felt today. I thank the two of you for showing me such great courage. I hope at least you can be proud of yourselves. And your mothers too”. Among the many comments also that of the son: “My mother for the second time thanks those who allowed themselves to steal something that does not belong to him. Too easy to see a woman alone, threaten her and consequently rob her of her things…then don’t complain”.
