Rome remembers murdered student in May Day concert


Italy’s traditional Labour Day concert in Rome was this year dedicated to the murdered graduate student Giulio Regeni.

His death continues to sour relations between Italy and Egypt with the government in Cairo being accused of a lack of transparency in their investigation.

Regeni’s body was found on February on the outskirts of Egyptian capital with clear signs of torture.

On April 8, Italy recalled its ambassador to Egypt due to a lack of progress in finding the culprits.

Popular artists such as Max Gazze performed at the May Day concert in Rome’s San Giovanni Square which was attended by over 800,000 people.
