A fellow expat blogger, Michelle, has read the 400+ published notes produced by the Italian courts referring to the contested Amanda Knox conviction and summarized the information along with her own comments about the case on this post on her Bleeding Espresso blog. Since many Americans were heavily questioning me on the case during my last visit to the US in March, I would like to refer them to this informative update from the Italian system's viewpoint, which had little coverage by the US media for obvious reasons. I did not know about several points until reading her post, despite having witnessed the media bonanza over the few years. My only point that differs from Michelle is the amount of Italian attention that was given to the case. I believe many Italians were focusing on it, rather constantly.
Several key pieces of evidence and problems with alibi are outlined in Michelle's post, including DNA and evidence of early morning phone calls and computer use by Sollecito, the boyfriend, which Knox did not cite in her testimony. This meant that she probably wasn't at his house at the time, as stated to police.
I think the motivazioni della sentenza will be very interesting to read for you, especially my American readers.
