Alessia Orro commented on the story with a post on Facebook: "Hello everyone.

I feel compelled as an athlete and public figure to share with you what is now slowly coming out everywhere .. I would like to set an example not only inside the field, but also and above all outside, to help all the people who have or are going through this.

difficult time as it happened to me in the past and in this last period. Boys and girls do not be afraid to report, violence, in whatever form it is, should not be underestimated. Be brave, because I personally know how difficult it can be, especially when you realize that the past could return to the present, but I can assure you that it would be even more difficult to face it alone!

First of all, I would like to thank the carabinieri who protected me on this journey, always making themselves available on every occasion. A special thanks also goes to my club, Vero volley Monza, which supported and helped me to face this bad episode, protecting me in every situation.

The thanks do not end there, and these are the most important of all, thank you very much to all the people who have been by my side lately, trying to make my days better and sometimes even tearing me a smile, without you everything would have been more difficult .

It was painful to reopen an old wound, but I am extremely happy that this is all over for now. Thank you for always supporting me. A hug, Alessia. "
