Amanda Knox has broken down in tears on her first return to Italy since her acquittal in the murder of her flatmate Meredith Kercher.

Ms Knox, 31, recalled her four years in jail after she was arrested in 2007 for the murder of British exchange student Ms Kercher in the house they rented in Perugia.

She became the focus of a sensational murder case, where she was depicted as an angel-faced man-eater dubbed Foxy Knoxy, while many in her native America defended her as an innocent victim caught in a judicial nightmare abroad.

"It was impossible for me to have a fair trial," she claimed, recalling how in the eyes of many she had become "the dirty, psychopathic man-eating Foxy Knoxy".

"They convicted that doppelganger. That person was sentenced to 26 years in jail," she said.

"The verdict fell upon me like a crushing weight," she added.

"I could only suffer in silence from my prison cell".

Ms Knox said the media invented a "false and baseless story, which fuelled people's fantasies" and that she was portrayed "on the global scene as cunning, psychopath, drugged, wh***, guilty".

Prior to her arrival in Italy, she published an essay called "Your Content, My Life", discussing her decision to accept an invitation from the Italy Innocence Project.

In it, she said that "while on trial for a murder I didn't commit, my prosecutor painted me as a sex-crazed femme fatale".

Amanda Knox , an American who spent nearly four years in an Italian prison after being accused of the murder of her roommate, broke down in tears on stage on Sunday, during her first visit to Italy since her 2011 acquittal. She took part in a debate entitled ‘Trial by Media’ at the Criminal Justice Festival

Amanda Knox , who spent years in an Italian jail for the murder of fellow student Meredith Kercher, a crime she was eventually cleared of, broke in to tears on the stage of the Criminal Justice Festival in Modena on Saturday, talking during a panel called 'Trial by media' on the third day of her visit to Italy .

It was "on us to stop making and stop consuming such irresponsible media", she wrote.

Ms Knox and her former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, were convicted of the 2007 murder of 21-year-old Ms Kercher in 2009.

The Briton was stabbed 47 times and her throat slashed at the flat she shared with Ms Knox.

The American spent four years in prison, before being cleared on appeal in 2011.

Judges ruled there had not been enough evidence to prove their wrongdoing beyond reasonable doubt, and said there were no "biological traces" firmly connecting them to the murder.

An immigrant from the Ivory Coast, Rudy Guede, is serving a 16-year jail sentence for the murder of Ms Kercher.

Prosecutors have maintained that the wounds sustained by Ms Kercher were inflicted by more than one person.

A conviction against Ms Knox for falsely accusing a bar owner in the case has been upheld.
