Lucignolo, Pinocchio e Mangiafuoco

The first time I really felt manipulated. In 2013 I was studying in Rome, I was 20 years old. Le Iene tv show started talking about Stamina method, an experimental therapy that alledgedly could be used to treat almost every neurodegenerative disease.
The Italian government forbade the treatment because of its lack of scientific support and the families of many ill children started a legal war. The aim was to keep treating the toddlers with this method.

Giulio Golia, a Iena journalist, started to talk about the case in a very partial way, making it look like the government was preventing kids from healing. People demonstrated against this decision, I felt indignant. In 2014 Davide Vannoni, the creator of the Stamina method, was arrested for fraud. Giulio Golia never talked about the method again and never unsay anything.
