Alessandro Borghi Sulla Mia Pelle, On My Skin – Stefano Cucchi

Alessandro Borghi as Stefano Cucchi in the true story Sulla Mia Pelle, On My Skin – Stefano Cucchi.

The incredible true story behind the most controversial Italian court cases in recent years. Stefano Cucchi was arrested for a minor crime and mysteriously found dead during his detention

Trial Detention

Stefano Cucchi is picked up weighing drugs and possessing it. He is mistreated by police officers and dies 7 days later in his cell, a hospital cell. Stefano had epileptic seizures and was covered in bruises during his pre-trial detention.

In the film we see that Stefano is getting sicker, has 2 broken backs vertebrae and can not urinate anymore. He also hardly drinks and eats.


He is being cared for in the prison hospital. What exactly the cause of death is still unknown. I personally think that it is all together, his illness, his weakness and the abuse, that all together led to his death.

At the end of the video you will see the real Stefano Cucci on a poster holding by his sister. 3 police officers have been convicted for mistreatment and making false statements.
