Rapper Fedez is under investigation in Rome on charges of aggravated defamation of Pietro Maso, the man who served a sentence of over 30 years in prison for killing his parents in 1991 and returned free in 2015. L the registration is linked to a complaint presented in recent months by the lawyer Alessio Pomponi, defender of Maso, in relation to the lyrics of the song “No Game-Freestyle” published last June by Fedez where reference is made to the trial of Maso.
“Delicate flow, satin stones, greetings to family from Pietro Maso, life always bars you with your head held high as when a nosebleed comes out (…)”, this is the passage of the passage contested by the lawyer. “The dramatic personal and procedural affair that involved me is explicitly recalled – writes Maso in the complaint – and which, after years and after a tiring and painful personal journey, I managed to overcome”.
For the complainant “the expressions used, referred to and referable in a clear, direct and explicit manner to the undersigned, appear objectively defamatory and certainly cannot be traced back to the use of strong images belonging to the musical genre or to the artistic style of the authors, or to events similar personal “. For Maso, the “freedom of expression and manifestation of one’s own thought, also and above all in the present case … cannot be determined in a way that would damage the integrity of others, since there is more, than the story that involved the undersigned, today, it assumes no interest in terms of actuality and historical relevance “.
