The 21-year-old was on the Piazza Sant Antonio when he was approached by a 22-year-old who he knew was the ex-boyfriend of his current girlfriend. He told the press he thought he was coming close to talk to him due to the loud music – but instead bit the top of his ear and tore it off.

Surgeons have rebuilt the ear after Saturday’s attack.

The biter has been arrested and faces charges.
