What happened at Rome Fiumicino (FCO)?

In June this year I wrote a controversial article in my blog about whether ECTRL A-CDM improves departure punctuality or not. Using Association of European Airlines (AEA) punctuality reports I analyzed the data of A-CDM airports.

Recently I was asked about my article and I quickly updated some airports. I had to double check FCO, because since the local A-CDM go-live, the departure punctuality of the AEA carriers has dropped remarkably (see chart).

Does anybody know what is going wrong at FCO?
