Francesco Zanardi says he was raped by a Catholic priest when he was 14-years-old and reported the crime 10 years ago.

But he has yet to see any progress towards justice.

So now, with the church under increased scrutiny over alleged abuses, he is building his case and gathering his own proof - including recorded conversations with his alleged perpetrator.  

Al Jazeera's Claudio Lavagna reports from Savona - also known as the city of popes.
