Knox is in Italy to attend a conference in Modena organized by the Italy Innocence Project, which seeks to help people who have been convicted for crimes they did not commit.

Amanda Knox is back in Italy for the first time since her murder trial, set to speak at a conference organized by an aid group for people falsely accused and charged with crimes, NBC News reported.

The 31-year-old was acquitted of killing her British roommate after a long legal saga.

Knox was swarmed by media when she arrived at an airport in Milan Thursday.

She tweeted Wednesday that she wouldn’t be speaking with journalists ahead of the speech, hoping it “will speak for itself.”
