Pecchini, overwhelmed by the storm, left his post. Now, move on to the counterattack. ” In light of the multiple and continuous media attacks, as already anticipated in an interview, I decided to contact the lawyer Gabriele Bordoni’s office to file a complaint against Aurora Leone and those who have harmed my reputation with her, so as to protect my rights, my image and, above all, my dignity as a man and as a professional ”, says the former CEO.

They are symptoms of a cultural and social malaise, potentially inducing dangerous drifts that in the story of Pecchini find an opportunity to be considered and discussed. But, in the meantime, the dignity of a man, his family and his work must be protected in the competent forum, protecting him from moral lynching and superficial, hasty and ferocious media condemnations, disengaged from the real dimension of the facts. So much is imposed in a rule of law ”, he concludes.
