With regard to the event involving a former pupil of the “Saint Pius X” Pre-seminary, subsequently ordained a priest, the following is stated.

Following various reports, both anonymous and otherwise, starting from 2013, several inquiries were carried out both by the Superiors of the Pre-seminary and by the Bishop of Como, as the Community of educators belongs to his diocese.

The events reported, which date back to previous years and would have involved several peers, some of whom were no longer present at the Institute at the time of the inquiries, do not find sufficient confirmation.

In view of the new elements that have recently emerged, a new investigation is underway, to shed full light on really happened.
