A murder, a body, a single piece of unknown DNA. So begins the gripping story of one of the most ambitious forensic investigations ever undertaken. Science and passion collide in this 7-year saga of murder and the search for justice in the foothills of the Italian Alps.
A new true-crine mini-series has all Italy talking.
Unknown Male #1 (Ignoto Uno) tells the story of the most high profile and unbelievable murder investigation in recent Italian history, resulting from the tragic and brutal slaying of 13-year old Yara Gambirasio near her home in Italy in 2010. With a sensitive and cinematic approach to its subject matter, the series is both a thrilling account of a remarkable criminal investigation, and a tender portrait of life, death and justice in present day Italy.
