Italian lawyer Gian Luca Mignogna has released a statement today confirming Gabriele Paparelli’s decision to take legal action against two Radio show hosts who insulted his father.

According to the statement (via La Lazio Siamo Noi), Paparelli and his lawyer Fabio Harakati have decided to take legal action against Alberto Gottardo and Emanuele Pirri due to their comments about his late father, Vincenzo, on a recent Instagram live broadcast.
