Giulia Tramontano trial, 10 things told by Alessandro Impagnatiello

There are inconsistencies compared to what was reconstructed by the investigators, there are passages to be reviewed, but above all there are details that tell the horror of the last months of Giulia Tramontano's life and death in the words of Alessandro Impagnatiello. On the first anniversary of the murder, the former barman answered questions from prosecutors for 5 hours at the trial in which he is the only defendant. The prosecutor Alessia Menegazzo who conducts the interrogation says that she responds “feeling like the absolute protagonist of the scene and with a total absence of empathy”. He says he doesn't know the number of stab wounds he inflicted, 37, and says he didn't want to kill her with the poison, but to cause her to have an abortion. The interrogation will continue on June 10 without, most likely, the answer to the question everyone is asking: because he killed her. She says she doesn't know, that she has asked herself “thousands of times”.


The woman was ignoring him as he spoke to her. «I asked her if she needed help, she completely ignored me. He continued as if I didn't exist. So while she was bent over looking for the plasters in a drawer, I took a kitchen knife and stood still behind her, when she got up I hit her. I aimed for her neck. I don't know how many stabs I gave her, on TV they said 37. After the first stab Giulia turned and looked at me, she didn't defend herself, but only because she didn't succeed, she didn't have the opportunity or time to react.”

The corpse

Impagnatiello tried to reduce the corpse to ashes. «Everyone was looking for her, her body was actually in the trunk of my car. I tried to burn it, but I couldn't turn it to ash.” The former barman said he went to his mother's house for lunch. “I had the body in the car.”

The move

«After the murder, surrounded by a state of senseless madness, with illogical actions I attempted to make Giulia's body disappear by trying to set fire to the corpse in the bathtub». Then the move to the cellar. “It was like a part of me was looking for help, she was looking for someone to see her. Because I moved her body up four flights of stairs, into a building inhabited by many people. It was as if I was hoping someone would see me, a neighbor, someone carrying the shopping, as if I wanted someone to stop me, find me.”


When Giulia Tramontano was still alive, he tried to poison her: «A grain of rat poison while she was sleeping. Not to hurt her, I wanted to cause an abortion.” She says she did it in May, but according to her analysis, the poisoning attempts date back to the previous months.

Parallel lives

He tells how he and Giulia Tramontano met, chatting during the Covid period. There are arguments and there is the other woman, also pregnant, «very beautiful with whom all my colleagues were in love, but she had chosen me, ours was not a serious relationship, she was like a rubber band for me, she kept moving away. , came back to me with more force.” Two relationships and what he calls a castle of lies. “I told her lover that I was still in contact with Giulia to support her during the pregnancy, which was difficult both physically and mentally.” She showed her lover a fake DNA test found on the Internet to prove to her that “he is not the father of the child expected by Giulia”.


Internet searches for this substance lead them back to the desire to clean the aquarium plates from jellyfish. According to the investigators, it served as a method to eliminate Giulia.


«I didn't want to hurt her, I just wanted to “hit” Thiago.” For Impagnatiello, the child who was about to be born was the obstacle, the element to be eliminated. He describes the swing of emotions when he found out about the pregnancy: “I was afraid it would ruin the relationship between us.”

The meeting with the other

«I didn't want her and A. to meet in the place where I worked, but Giulia did it, humiliating me, causing my image to collapse. She had destroyed me at work and also as a man. I didn't want to be humiliated, I cared about my image in the workplace, the esteem that my colleagues had for me. I had some responsibility with the staff. In December I would have gotten a promotion, it was already black and white.”


«You know, my job is very stressful, it requires us to always be perfect». Here he tells an anecdote from primary school where the teacher had given him, at the top of the class, the lowest grade: «I had completely missed the test. The class was shocked. She said: “Alessandro is not god, he too can make mistakes”. This moment and the one in which he remembers his father are the only ones in which he is moved.


He always talks about himself and for the prosecutor's office this is a sign of pathological narcissism. “I continued to feed this double reality in my head.” He is always the protagonist.
