On the 22nd January 2018, three youths launched themselves against the correspondent and his team from the TV programme Striscia La Notizia in the Traiano neighbourhood in Naples.
The Carabinieri of Bagnoli (Naples), coordinated by the Public Prosecutor of Naples have arrested three youths for the aggression suffered by the correspondent of Striscia La Notizia, Vittorio Brumotti, and by his team on the 22nd January 2017 in the Traiano neighbourhood of Naples. Il Mattino broke the news on the 30th October 2018 (read here).
In the Traiano neighbourhood Brumotti and his crew were insulted and pelted with eggs and stones. Some individuals with their faces half covered with scarves and hatstried to block their car and kicked it. The Carabinieri intervened and escorted the correspondent and his collaborators out of the neighbourhood.
Between the end of 2017 and the firstmonths of 2018 Brumotti was attacked eight times in several Italian cities (read here). The correspondent of Striscia and his team have documented drug dealing throughout Italy, conducting an investigation in the field called by them “Spacciatour” (DrugDealingTour). The technique they adopted was that of pretending to be buyers themselves and secretly filming the attempt of drug dealers to selldrugs. Then Brumotti came out into the open and with a megaphone denounced the illicit activity, irritating and provoking the drugdealers.
