I've read the book (finally a good italian book on dinosaurs!) and found no more info about Scipionyx's position than those previously available after the considerations made onlist.
It is considered a basal coelurosaur because of the presence of the following primitive features: prefrontal well-developed; lacrimal robust; acromion present, rounded coracoid ;ischial distal expansion (ischial foot?); 4th trocanter weakly developed ; unexpanded , thin v-shaped chevrons.
These are given in the book.
the big question…How can we order the book?
