The Pisan heiress had been accompanied by the beneficiaries, the medium and her son. Her alleged psychic claimed to be able to put her in contact with her parents, her father especially her, who passed away over twenty years ago
PISA. She still believes it. The 75-year-old Pisan pensioner who donated at least six million euros to a family of Ponte Buggianese, a nucleus of four who ended up under house arrest on charges of circumvention of incapacity and money laundering, “is still very attached to the suspects and still in state of subjection to them »writes the investigating judge of the Pistoia court in the precautionary custody order for Luana Palatresi, 56, her husband Donato Maddalena, 60, and their children Alessio Maddalena, 32, and Jonathan Maddalena, 31. They are accused of having deceived at least 13 million euros from the Pisan heiress and a 64-year-old entrepreneur from Santa Croce sull’Arno.
Since 2016 the pension, left alone after the death of her parents, received at home the Palatresi, pranotherapist and medium, who claimed to be able to put her in contact with her parents, especially her father, who passed away over twenty years ago.
The suspicion, it is not known how well founded, that the accountant was not too correct, had pushed him into the arms of the average and his two children. She had donated six million euros to the three at different times.
“But the money is there, you can take it back whenever you want,” the beneficiaries of the generous donation had reassured her.
The pension, heard several times by the Montecatini carabinieri, has always declared that he had given the money without any constraint. His mental health is very unstable. “It is good that you ask Father what to do,” she says to Palatresi in a message. And the investigator replies: «Of course, in fact I had already thought of the right prayer to get the answer from father and mother». In support of the 75-year-old’s suggestibility, there is another conversation between the heiress and medium on the record. It is Palatresi who speaks: “Father (died in 2001, ed) told me that he took the key to the family chapel at the cemetery, he didn’t want you to go to the chapel because you stayed too long and calculating the time you were inside the chapel, you found a big danger on the way back home . He told me to tell you that he calculates every minute and every moment, on your movements so as not to make you have problems on the road. Don’t worry if you can’t find the key for now. ” And the pension: «You are unique! My father is exceptional, he is my guardian angel, he always protects me, I am very happy ». In July 2016, the 75-year-old comes with Alessio Maddalena and Luana Palatresi to Vienna where she arranges the transfer of about 900 thousand euros from her current account to those of her companions.
According to the accusation, the victim of one person would also be the Santacrocese tanning entrepreneur who was a client of the Palatresi media. It is on that occasion that he meets the woman’s children. Alessio Maddalena “would have convinced him that his wife was cheating on him and that therefore he should have taken care to secure his assets,” writes the judge. In fact, the entrepreneur changes financial consultant, tells the partner of the company that he wants to sell his shares and breaks all ties with his wife from whom he is separating. At the same time, he pays insurance policies to the Maddalena, delivers jewels and makes a will, even with video footage. For the prosecution a move suggested by the suspects. The Pisan heiress and the entrepreneurs from Santa Croce sull’Arno, who filed a lawsuit in July 2020 and started the investigation, share a situation of extreme mental fragility. A free that for the carabinieri served an entire family to appropriate at least 13 million euros.
