March on Friday to remember woman murdered near Padua


Padua, May 23 - A march organized by Veneto
women's center Progetti Donna on Friday will remember
49-year-old Silvana Cassol, murdered by her husband, 38-year-old
Gabriele Ghersina on Wednesday in their home near Padua.
Ghersina, a police officer from the town of Cadoneghe,
shot his wife first then himself with his service-issued pistol
in a murder-suicide that police believe was a crime of passion.
The dead couple was discovered when officers went to the
policeman's home after he did not show up for his shift.
"Femicide and violence against women is a phenomenon so
complex that it cannot be reduced to a matter of numbers, nor
can it be considered a temporary emergency," said a release by
the center.
Cassol's murder is the latest in a series of violent
female deaths to have plagued Italy.
A third of women in Italy reported being victims of
serious domestic violence, according to a 2012 UN report citing
data from Italian statistics agency ISTAT.
