Today a student went to the carabinieri declaring that she was sexually harassed by one of her teachers when she was in her first year. The professor, this is his version of the facts, would have asked her to send him "special" photos to obtain the sufficiency in his subject.

The head teacher has also heard some students to try to clarify, inviting those who are aware of specific facts to report to the police.
The same director also proposed to the children a document approved by the teaching council in which it is emphasized that "if there have been actions, behaviors, episodes over the years that have in some way cracked the relationship of trust between the various school components, it is everyone's interest is that these emerge in full light and are evaluated and prosecuted in the appropriate fora, including judicial ones. It is in the interest of us educators above all, strongly aware of the responsibility of a job that is not only difficult but too often lacking in both human and professional satisfaction , that the truth is fully affirmed ".
