avoid the evil you have to make love with me!»
evidences of a woman addressed by her doctor to the ontopsychologist Meneghetti
- "I want to talk to warn people"
Is slowly falling down
the cospiracy of silence around the notorious Meneghetti. The former priest
now it's not only the bearer of strange theories that take away his clients
from their families and normal life, but this man is also the subject of
many impeachments. A woman has told us her story, she's been forced to
sexual activities during a psychotherapic consultation. Here's her dramatic
"Hello, are you the
Paese Sera reporter who is inquiring about Mr. Meneghetti? You are discovering
the truth about him, but there's something even worse. I'm scared,
but I want to help other people that can be contrived by that man. That's
why I'm calling you". The woman refused to let me write here her name and
"In 1979, me and my
husband were two of Meneghetti's clients and together with us there
were a lot of people coming from all over Italy, from Udine, Vicenza and
above all Naples, where it seems that Meneghetti had many protectors. It
was strange to me that so many people left their jobs just to follow him,
and give him as much money as possible: you know, to be cured by him you
need a lot of money! I'm not sure, but I think that many unemployed women
decided to prostitute themselves to pay Meneghetti".
How much is a bill?
"Last year it costed
50,000 lire but now I think it's 100,000 lire. Sexual consultations costed
100,000 lire, those of cinotherapy (therapy based on the vision of
movies) costed 30,000 lire, music therapy more than 100,000 lire, immagogy
25,000 lire (during this strange therapy clients stay half-asleep and when
they wake they have to describe what they dreamt so the therapist explains
them the meaning of those half-asleep visions, saying them if they are
healthy or not). The result is that it was necessary a lot of money, and
me and my husband began to be worried on how to get money to buy new shoes
to our children!".
But what did Mr
Meneghetti told you?
"The same old story,
that I had to go away from everything and everybody, my family first of
all, because in the relationship with my relatives passed only negatives
energies. He told me that I was personally responsable of my son's arm
fracture, but I wasn't even there when it happened!".
What can you say
about other abuses of Mr. Meneghetti?
"I'm a good woman,
of a good family, I have a job and a position... what can I say? He left
me so upset that I have never gone there no more. During personal therapy
he induced me to make love with him. He told that he was Jesus Christ and
that I would have loved him even more than my husband. I know that many
women shared with me the same treatment".
But during the sexual
relation, were you consent?
"No, I wasn't, but
Meneghetti is a very strong and violent man... I was upsed, confused and
scared, but now I understand".
But why did you
decide to be cured by Meneghetti?
"A physician told me
his name. Doc. Bruni was a psychiatrist and neurologist who sent a lot
of people to Meneghetti. I don't know if Bruni did it 'cause he believed
in Meneghetti or if he received money by him".
Do you know something
about Pissignano, the castle where Meneghetti lives?
"Yes, I know it. Initiates
buy houses around the castle with a regular notarial deed of a Notary of
Why didn't you decide
to react to Meneghetti before?
"Yes, we contacted
the Vicarship and they told us that Mons. Cunbal would have manage the
thing, he also told us that we had to thank God because we were finally
far from that man".
When you decided
to stop with the therapy, what did Meneghetti tell you?
"He menaced us. He
said 'You will kill yourself! You'll throw yourself from a bridge and kill
one of your children!'. I heard Meneghetti to tell a girl that she would
have killed herself with her hands. These are the things that he tells
to the people that want to go away from him".
Were there any real
"An architect wife
killed herself and another woman threw herself from the third floor. The
last one saved herself but now has a glass-eye. She works at the INPS company,
What do the Meneghetti's
initiates do in their normal life?
"He wants us to act
our role. Many initiates have apparently a normal life, with a good position
and a job, but they have very big mental problems!".
Do you think that
Meneghetti is rich now?
"Yes, for sure... He
send his money in Switzerland. I hope that you will understand how I'm
feeling now, I want to help other people and protect them from the dangerous
and violent therapies of that man".
