Gazzetta Dello Sport reported that the second decisive hearing will take place on October 2.
Turin-based daily La Stampa said his legal team are interested only in acquittal rather than a reduction in the ban.
The suspension was imposed last month after he was found guilty by the Italian football federation of failing to report match-fixing when in charge of Siena during the 2010-2011 season.
