Amanda, then an American college student, was studying overseas in the Italian town of Perugia when her roommate, British student Meredith Kercher, was found dead in the apartment they shared.

Her throat had been slashed.Another man, Rudy Guede, was arrested and convicted separately of Kercher's murder; he is now serving a 16-year prison sentence. She landed at an airport in Milan, within the country's north, rising to a throng of reporters. It studies some of the issues behind wrongful convictions.
Italy's top court overturned the acquittal in 2013 and, upon retrial (at which Amanda wasn't physically present), upheld the murder conviction.
Knox, now 31, flew in to the northern city of Milan on Thursday before heading to Modena, where she was seen at a cocktail party inaugurating the festival, glass in hand and smiling.
She will be a guest speaker on a panel titled "Trial by Media" on Saturday at the invitation of the Italy Innocence Project.
Knox also wrote of the intense media attention her case received, saying that while on trial "for a murder I didn't commit", the prosecutor "painted me as a sex-crazed femme fatale, and the media profited for years by sensationalising an already sensational and utterly unjustified story".
"It's on us to stop making and stop consuming such irresponsible media", she added.
Amanda addressed her decision to return to Italy in an essay published on Medium. Entitled "Your Content, My Life", Knox called on media outlets to be "compassionate", "brave", and to " treat its subjects like the human beings they are".
"Somebody's lifestyles could maybe well also form a colossal narrative, but it's light their lifestyles", she wrote.
Ms Kercher, who studied European politics and Italian at the University of Leeds, was found dead on her bedroom floor in the house she was sharing with Ms Knox in November 2007.
In 2009, she and her boyfriend at the time, Raffaele Sollecito, were first convicted of the 2007 murder of her roommate, Meredith Kercher.

Rudy Guede was found guilty of Kercher's murder in a separate trial in 2008 and is serving a sentence of 16 years. The case quickly became an worldwide spectacle, with audiences the world over feverishly debating the subject of her innocence.
