Serie B side Bari have been docked two points for financial irregularities last season.
The club was on the verge of bankruptcy and failed to pay players’ wages as well as tax contributions in April, May and June 2011.
Bari general manager Claudio Garzelli is also suspended for four months.
This means Bari go down from 21 points in the Serie B table to 19.
