Bologna risk being sanctioned after the club's owner Sergio Porcedda allegedly didn't pay any wages for May and June this year.
The Felsinei have been asked to appear before the FIGC's federal magistrate after Covisoc, the financial regulatory body, alerted them to the missed payments.
Bologna, who currently lie 15th in Serie A, are now at serious risk of incurring a points penalty, which could set their survival plans back a notch.
When asked earlier this week if he had paid the outstanding wages, Porcedda reacted angrily.
The Sardinian businessman's financial clout has come under repeated scrutiny ever since he completed his takeover of the club in July.
