Benedetta is the daughter of one of the latest victims of Italian terrorism, the journalist Walter Tobagi, killed on 28 May 1980. Her recent book, "Come mi batte forte il tuo cuore" (Einaudi), is not just a poignant, beautifully written memoir, but also an accurate, gripping, historical reconstruction of what lies behind that tragic event and of one of the most dramatic periods of Italy's contemporary history.
