[Foundation-l] Blackout at Italian Wikipedia - What exactly does the proposed law say?

I would echo Risker's question: What exactly does the proposed new law say? 
Is it that disputed content will have to be *removed* if a request is received, and *replaced* with the BLP subject's statement?
Or is it that BLP subjects have the right to ask for a correction to be posted on the page, *in addition* to the disputed content?
I can read some Italian; a link to the proposed text of the new law, along with an indication of the relevant section or paragraph, would be much appreciated.

Perhaps someone who can understand Italian well might be able to provide a
brief summary of the situation to those of us who, sadly, depend on google
translate?  I am unclear what the "new" law says that is leading
Italian-speaking Wikipedians to consider a blackout of the Italian
