Bevilacqua's death not due to 'mistreatment'

Rome, September 12 - The autopsy report for the Italian writer Alberto Bevilacqua, who passed away after a long illness aged 79 on Monday, found that the novelist died from a "multi-organ shutdown," not due to negligent treatment, a lawyer representing the author's sister said on Thursday. Four people from the Villa Mafalda clinic in Rome were placed under investigation on Wednesday for his death to determine if they provided adequate treatment of Bevilacqua during his 11-month stay at the private structure. Investigators launched a probe after his partner complained about the treatment he received. Bevilacqua was a highly prolific author who produced over 40 books between the early 1960s until last year that helped tell the story of life in Italy after World War II.
