The blog has been already posted in the Italian mailing list and I would
say that this is an excellent result.

The justice in Italy is really slow in general, but in this case the
timeline has been short and the result of the court of justice really good
for the future.

The definition that the prosecutor is able to change the definition in
Wikipedia and for this reason there is no sense to accuse Wikipedia or WMF,
it's a good way to give an indication for the future.

Thank you
