Description

Roberto Saviano is back confronting the injustices of organized crime in Italy. In his writings, articles and books he employs prose and news-reporting style to narrate the story of the Camorra (a powerful Neapolitan mafialike organization), exposing its territory and business connections.

Since 2006, Saviano has been threatened by several Neapolitan “godfathers.” Because of his courageous stance, he is considered a “national hero” by author-philosopher Umberto Eco.
