Roberto Saviano

Roberto Saviano (1979) is an Italian writer and journalist. In his writings, he narrates the story of the Camorra (a powerful Neapolitan mafia-like organization), exposing its territory and business connections. Since 2006, following the publication of his bestselling book Gomorrah where he describes the clandestine particulars of the Camorra business, Saviano has been threatened by several Neapolitan "godfathers". The Italian Minister of the Interior has granted him a permanent police escort.

He lives at a secret location to avoid reprisal attacks for his book about the mafia, Gomorrah. Saviano was also accused by former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and also by many other ministers of defaming the country and being unpatriotic.
