Alessandra Matteuzzi had an order blocking her soccer-player ex from stalking her

A 56-year-old woman, Alessandra Matteuzzi, was killed last night in Bologna, struck with a hammer and other blunt objects on the outskirts of the city. Responsible was her ex-partner, Giovanni Padovani, 27, a soccer player and model. He had already been reported by the victim for stalking and had received a judge’s ban on approaching her. When law enforcement arrived, the 27-year-old was on the scene near the woman’s body and was arrested by police.
