The spotlight turned back on Gabriele Marchetti, Ciao Darwin’s ex-competitor, who was left paraplegic after the accident at the Roller Game. The water was too shallow and the wheels too slippery. It was he himself who talked about his “new” life on that tragic April 17, 2019 in a River interview. Now Gabriele’s days are a routine of boredom and hours that don’t pass because he can’t do anything, no activity. Marchetti is now completely dependent on his family. But his words also show all the disappointment at how he was treated, in fact not treated, by Paolo Bonolis. “He never came looking for me to find out how I was doing. Not even people close to him have ever contacted me ».
Hello Darwin, the accusation of Gabriele Marchetti, who remained paraplegic after the roller game accident: “Bonolis never looked for me”
Gabriele Marchetti, charges against Bonolis “fall”
Harsh words that smell of accusation but at least partially deny the lawyer of the man who was paralyzed after the Genodrome game: «Paolo Bonolis once named the wife and once the son of Gabriele Marchetti. These two phone calls took place in the days following the accident », with these words that Federica Magnanti, Gabriele’s lawyer, passed on to the Corriere della Sera, at least partially exonerating Bonolis of all charges. “A few months after the accident – he adds – Bonolis’ wife was looking for Marchetti’s wife because she wanted to know how my client was doing.” But Marchetti’s statements a few days ago made something else clear: “Paolo Bonolis never came looking for me to find out how I was doing. Not even people close to him have ever contacted me ». Initially, some production talks made themselves heard by phone and made themselves available for any need, “but then there were no other contacts anymore”
The complaint was withdrawn
So the truth lies somewhere in between once again, Bonolis never actually contacted the man but called his family to find out how he was doing.
According to the lawyers, Marchetti recently dropped the lawsuit against those responsible for the show after being compensated by RTI (the amount is not known).
