Roberto Saviano

Feb 22, 2018

(Italian: [roˈbɛrto saˈvjaːno]Naples, September 22, 1979) is an Italian journalist, writer and essayist. In his writings, including articles and his book Gomorrah (his debut novel that brought him fame), he uses literature and investigative reporting to tell of the economic reality of the territory and business of the Camorra crime syndicate and of organized crime more generally.

After the first death threats of 2006 made by the Casalese clan, a cartel of the Camorra, which he denounced in his exposé and in the piazza of Casal di Principe during a demonstration in defense of legality,[1] Roberto Saviano was put under a strict security protocol. Since October 13, 2006, he has lived under police protection. [2]

He has collaborated with numerous important Italian and international newspapers. Currently he writes for the Italian publications l’Espresso, la Repubblica and The Post Internazionale. Internationally, he collaborates in the United States with The Washington Post,[3] The New York Times,[4] and Time;[5] in Spain with El Pais;[6] in Germany with Die Zeit[7] and Der Spiegel;[8] in Sweden with Expressen;[9] and in the United Kingdom with The Times[10] and The Guardian.[11]

His courageous positions have drawn praise from many important writers and other cultural figures, such as Umberto Eco.[12]

In 2015 he launched his own editorial project, RSO – Roberto Saviano Online.

“In the Camorra system murder is necessary; it’s like depositing money in the bank, purchasing a franchise, or breaking off a friendship. […] But killing a priest, one outside the dynamic of power, pricks your conscience.” (Gomorrah, English translation by Virginia Jewiss).
