What do an abandoned boyfriend who spends his days texting the ex-girlfriend, an authoritarian man, a husband who is too quiet at home, a woman who is excessively exuberant and an old man who gives away gigantic bouquets of roses to his ex-wife who left him have in common? Everyone can be accused of stalking. Configured as a crime in Italy only in February 2009, stalking has a precise definition but an anomalous collective perception. In 2017 the legislator has determined that the crime of stalking cannot be canceled entirely through financial compensation. The efforts so far have been wavering and discontinuous and there are those who still use justifying terms such as "crime of passion" even among those who consider themselves pioneers of communication.
