The story of Alessia Piperno

I was living the classic monotonous life of work, boy, some going out with friends and then again work, work, work“, had explained Alessia in 2018 at Gianluca Gotto’s blog. From there she had made the decision to start wandering around the world and to tell her travels on her Instagram profile. Her six years of travel had taken her to Iran, where she had arrived almost four months ago from Pakistan. During her stay there she had clashed with the different treatment women receive in the country: “I’m lucky to be able to sing out loud when I’m in the car, dance like crazy when I listen to music, ride a motorcycle, leave my hair fluttering to the sky, lucky to be able to walk down the street holding the hand of the person I love, without having to hide. If you are a woman, you are not allowed to do this in Iran. And now that I am in this part of the world where women do not have this freedom, I think about how much yes, I am lucky ».

The reason for the arrest

Although they never clarified the specific reasons for the arrest, the Iranian authorities had commented on the story remembering that “foreign citizens who are in Iran for tourism or business must respect the laws of the country“, Fueling the suspicion that she had been involved – even if it is not known to what degree – in the protests that for over two months have inflamed the country following the death of Mahsa Amini, the 22-year-old girl who died under suspicious circumstances after being arrested by the moral police for not wearing the Islamic headscarf in the correct manner. According to Italian intelligence, the hypothesis is well founded. The outbreaks of protest in Iran, in fact, are numerous and impromptu, and it is not unlikely to find themselves in the middle even unintentionally.
