Rome, October 17, 2010 - "I miss my family. I have friends who are like brothers and sisters, but I want to live ... It is here that we can not live, but not what you think you can tell." Amanda Knox, who was sentenced in first instance to 26 years imprisonment for the murder of British student Meredith Kercher, speaks of herself from his prison cell in Perugia and dreams of receiving a single gift, "Freedom. All things in life are not the same - he says - not the most important thing. "
To obtain the confidence of the girl in Seattle was Rocco Girlanda, MP and president of Italy Foundation USA, which has made a book, still in print, and which was made available to the Ansa news agency. A few references to the court case is concerned, that appear in the book 'I'm coming with you - Talks in prison with Amada Knox', journal of the many interviews that the author has had with her behind bars. "
"When everything is finished - Amanda says - I want to go to my family, I miss her, but then I go back to Italy, 'cause here I've been good.''He added:" I do not have it in any way with Italy, in Italy there are many people who helped me and I have been close. I do have the conviction that I had.''
The American girl tells of receiving letters from prison in the world, alternating between positive feelings towards her and dismissive reviews. "On the one hand - says Amanda, whose story will soon become a movie for Lifetime TV - I feel grateful that there are so many who care, 'cause I will not be closed all my life for nothing, forgotten as if they were worth anything; I do not want injustice to be accepted easily. At the same time not want to be manipulated into messages of hate. " "I know I'm not alone even when I'm alone," says Amanda, quoting a song by Jovanotti.
In the book, Amanda, in several chapters, he speaks at length with Girlanda - always accompanied in the talks with the girl from Daclon Corrado Maria, founder and secretary general of Italy Foundation USA - about her past, her arrival in Italy, her dreams for future, implying, without explicitly saying so, and hope that his' free to come back soon.
"As a child - tells Amanda - I was a 'tomboy', a tomboy." Her mother gave her an indication of life that strives to put into practice: "the only thing I want you when you grow up - he said - and ' you're nice. I do not care if you're good or if you're smart, I want you to be kind. "Among the memories of adolescence, the parade as a model for artistic projects of a friend.
"I arrived in Italy in September 2007," says Amanda, to attend a course for the creative writer in Rome. My mother has always had great admiration for Italy, and I have learned from her. I have seen very little I arrived in Italy . i have already seen more when I was 14 years old and I came on the road with my parents. I was very pleased Pompeii, Pompeii had studied and then I could say that I know what I saw. "
A few months after arriving in Italy, in Perugia, the impact of the prison: "Living in prison is very special. I consider myself a pretty transparent person, but there should be a bit 'close in themselves. Here there are many people who suffer. Living here is like in a limbo, because obviously you do not want to be here: you live a little 'memories of what life was like before, in the hopes that we want for tomorrow, and trying not to feel as much as possible here . It 's so strange how one feels. "
"I - still tells Amanda - I read a lot and study languages, 'cause I want to be an interpreter, but I am also interested creative writing .. During the day I go out to walk, I write, I get letters. The other prisoners told me:' you're famous. 'I answer, but i'm not Angelina Jolie. What a bad thing to be famous for what has happened to me. It would be better for something I wrote, I realized. "
A difficult situation - she explains - "where there's only me who I am crushed. I often find myself in great difficulty, as, for example, my parents are attacked just because they say as I really am. "
And, speaking of fame, the U.S. also speaks of Fabrizio Corona, "that all tattooed." "One person told me that I should meet him, but I said no right away," says Knox again.
The plans for the future - Amanda does not say, but it suggests - are linked to a speedy return to freedom. She would soon return to his family in the U.S., and then think to realize his dreams: an interpreter or writer, marriage and the desire to adopt a child.
"If I had to decide between having a baby or adopt it - Amanda says - would prefer to adopt it. It 's weird, I know, but I think there are a lot of children in this world who have nobody. I want a husband, but if not I can find the right person, does not mean I do not want to have more children. And I'm not thoroughly convinced that there must necessarily be a family of a father and a mother, for example, I have always been very close to my father, physically close, but my house was only my mother. When I was little and I imagined myself to be great with kids, I often imagined alone. Of course the best situation is that of a father and a mother - she concludes - but I do not think that it is not possible to raise children with love in a different situation. "
''I'm not Catholic - then reveals Amanda - I have not been baptized and my parents left me free to decide. "The girl, however, participate in and put in prison chaplain, Don Saul, has a unique" prophecy ": "It 's convinced that I will become a nun. He sees that I read the prayers with sincerity, and that plays with equal sincerity. "
The book also published a response to a letter the former director of ANSA Giampiero Gramaglia about the process: "I know that I was not always understandable, and I have long been guided by a too stubborn naivete that caused confusion," writes the girl.
