LABANOF. Nameless Bodies from the Bottom of Mediterranean
RAI Radio 3 (Italy)
Prix Italia 2020 Radio Documentary and Reportage Award

March 18, 2021 - 10:00-11:30 CET

LABANOF is the name of the forensic anthropology and odontology laboratory of the University of Milan, where Professor Cristina Cattaneo along with a team of odontologists, archeologists, biologists and anthropologists, works to identify nameless bodies. The lab has solved some of the most controversial post-mortem identification cases in recent Italian history, but in June 2015 a phone call faced them with the biggest challenge yet: the shipwreck of April 18, 2015, one of the worst tragedies in the Mediterranean. LABANOF was charged with the job of giving a name to each of the victims. The mission began, and as of today, the lab is still engaged in the study and the cataloging of thousands of remains and personal belongings. Restituting an identity to all of the dead means restoring their dignity and it gives answers to those who remain.
