Scientific Evidence and Criminal Procedure 2022

Dott. Marco Pittiruti

During the course, the legal and practical issues encountered in the introduction of scientific evidence in the Italian criminal trial will be examined, focusing on its potentialities and limitations. Both ‘old fashioned’ forensic techniques – such as fingerprints and toolmarks – and newer technologies such as DNA and digital forensics will be discussed. Special attention will be given to the Italian-style legislative framework on expert witnesses and to a variety of controversies regarding the admissibility and weight of scientific evidence.  The course will also include an in-depth analysis of heritage cases on scientific evidence in Italy, such as the murders of Meredith Kercher (2007), Chiara Poggi (2007) and Yara Gambirasio (2010).
