Family Day: statistics

According to research conducted by Vincenzo Mastronardi of Rome's La Sapienza, a murder is committed within the walls of the Italian family home every other day (to be precise, 174 in Italy in 2005). The most murderous group is composed of the male partners, both married and unmarried; these are followed by infanticides, matricides and patricides; in third place are brothers and sisters in law, cousins etc. The least likely group to top another family member? Mothers in law.

Family Day sì! Family Day no!
