Dopo aver fatto a pezzi il cadavere, mettevo la pentola sul fuoco verso le sette di sera, e per tutta la notte la lasciavo andare, fino alle quattro del mattino. A volte nel sapone c’erano pezzi un po’ più duri. Erano le ossa che non si erano saponificate. Il sangue di solito lo riunivo a marmellata con cioccolato, oppure con garofano e cannella per ottenere l’impasto delle mie torte”. Erika De Pieri, giovane disegnatrice della scuola del fumetto di Milano, ricostruisce l’incredibile storia della Saponificatrice di Correggio, la donna senza scrupoli che ha sconvolto l’Italia degli anni Quaranta.
Cianciulli had 17 pregnancies during her marriage, but lost three of the children to miscarriage. Ten more died in their youth. Consequently, she was heavily protective of the four surviving children. Her fears were fueled by a warning she had received some time earlier from a fortune teller, who said that she would marry and have children, but that all of the children would die young. In 1939, Cianciulli learned that her eldest son, Giuseppe, was going to join the Italian Army in preparation for World War II.
Giuseppe was her favourite child, and she was determined to protect him at all costs. She came to the conclusion that his safety required human sacrifices. She found her victims in three middle-aged women, all neighbours. The first of Cianciulli’s victims, Faustina Setti, was a lifelong spinster who had come to her for help in finding a husband.
