''Italy is a free country but homophobia exists and whoever has this attitude must deal with his own conscience,'' the letter said.
It is the third case in Rome in a year of young gay committing suicide, after the death of 14-year-old two months ago and a 15-year-old last November.
Investigators are questioning relatives and friends of the 21-year-old to try to understand his premature end. The man's parents said they were not aware he was gay.
