The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) said the choice was made “pending any further… decision by the authorities”, suggesting the possibility of a restart on 13 June might still exist.
The Italian season has been on hold since March 9 amid the coronavirus pandemic which has killed more than 32 000 people in Italy.
