Roberto Saviano

Roberto Saviano Roberto Saviano (; born September 22, 1979) is an Italian writer, essayist and screenwriter. In his writings, including articles and his book ''Gomorrah'' (his debut 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.

Since October 13, 2006, he has lived under police protection.

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'', ''The New York Times'', and ''Time''; in Spain with ''El Pais''; in Germany with ''Die Zeit'' and ''Der Spiegel''; in Sweden with ''Expressen''; and in the United Kingdom with ''The Times'' and ''The Guardian''.

His courageous positions have drawn praise from many important writers and other cultural figures, such as Umberto Eco. Provided by Wikipedia
