Age 40
23 Sep 2018
San Giorgio, Bari (Italy)


Ambra's body was found by police in a car on the outskirts of San Giorgio on the morning of Sunday 23rd September. She had been stabbed in the shoulder and had bled to death.

In mid-October Ambra's friends held a mass for her in the parish of San Sabino.

"After Ambra's death there was only silence, apart from the newspaper articles published on the day of the murder, nothing more, nothing has been said of her case, but we hope that the institutions are moving, that come to the truth about who killed her".

Alessia is one of Ambra's friends, the 40-year-old transsexual found dead on September 23 in her car in San Giorgio, killed with a knife at the base of her neck. She is the spokesperson for transgender girls who, together, have decided to organize a commemoration dedicated to their friend who is no longer there. Tonight at 7 pm, in the parish of San Sabino, they will meet for a mass in memory of Ambra.“
