Italy, Street-Photography and The Law – A Real Case

annulled-camera-sequestration-decreeLast July, members of the Polizia municipale of Rome seized the camera of a British-Brazilian street-photographer, Simon Griffee, while he was documenting the way they dealt with an immigrant.

As Simon’s lawyer I’ve filed an appeal and a week ago the Court of Rome revoked the seizure.

The battle is not over, yet, but hopefully Simon’s camera will be back on his hands pretty soon.

As soon as possible I will release a thorough analysis of the case matched with what the law says, in theory.
