The arrival of the TV cameras, the search for the culprit(s), the media trial; they all affect the economic and social life of the location where a crime takes place. Despite the crisis of mainstream TV, programmes that deal with high-profile crimes are among the most popular. The session will take as its starting point a report written by the Perugia Journalism School on this phenomenon, which has exploded over the last 15 years and continues unabated.
