Woman hospitalized after brutal beating from partner

Padua, May 30 - A woman has been hospitalized in the northern city of Padua after police found her semi-conscious and being beaten by her partner in their home on Thursday. The 42-year-old woman suffered head injuries, a fractured rib and foot after her 35-year-old partner attacked her, police said. The man, who could face charges of attempted murder, has been admitted to a hospital psychiatric ward where he is under observation. A series of violent female deaths have plagued Italy recently, including that of 49-year-old Silvana Cassol, murdered by her husband, 38-year-old Gabriele Ghersina, last week in their home near Padua. According to a 2012 UN report citing data from Italian statistics agency Istat, a third of women in Italy have reported being victims of serious domestic violence.
