Matteo Renzi and Lucio Presta under investigation for illegal financing
The senator and leader of Italia Viva, Matteo Renzi, and the manager Lucio Presta are being investigated by the Rome prosecutor for illegal financing and false invoicing.
At the center of the investigation, according to the newspaper Tomorrow who first broke the news, there is the documentary Florence in my opinion, made by the former premier with the collaboration of the production company Arcobaleno 3, owned by the Presta family, and aired on the Discovery Channel between December 2018 and January 2019.
For the documentary, the former secretary of the Democratic Party had received a cachet of 454 thousand euros: according to the prosecutor’s office, the figure could actually hide an illegal loan from Renzi.
According to what Emiliano Fittipaldi writes, the documentary, which cost “almost one million euros in compensation for Renzi and production costs” has not generated any revenue up to now. Not only that, for the document the Rainbow 3 would have presented Discovery with an invoice “for just one thousand euros, which among other things has not yet been collected”.
