The judge for preliminary investigations of Vicenza, Nicolò Gianesini, has decided to dismiss the proceedings against Rosà’s family doctor Pantaleo Vitalianorelating to the death of the singer from Vicenza Michele Merlo, at 28 years old. Merlo, as will be remembered, died at the Sant’Orsola hospital in Bologna after two days of agony due to fulminant leukemia. It was June 6, 2021.

“Finally, after two and a half years of suffering, Dr. Pantaleo Vitaliano can say that he has no criminal responsibility in relation to the death of Michele Merlo” he declares to Corriere del Veneto the lawyer Andrea Biasia, the doctor’s lawyer, who had been accused of manslaughter. “The dismissal of the proceedings – he continues – restores dignity to an esteemed professional who in fact Merlo’s father kept as his family doctor”.

Michele Merlo presented himself to the learned Vitaliano on 26 May 2021: the public prosecutor Jacopo Augusto Corno had requested the dismissal last September, arguing that the opinions of the experts they had not given absolute certainty that a correct diagnosis during that first visit could have saved him. Last February the family opposed that dismissal, but the investigating judge accepted the prosecutor’s request. Now the Merlo family could in any case open a civil lawsuit for compensation for damages.
