FIND ITALIAN BOOKS

Roberto Saviano is an Italian journalist, writer, and screenwriter renowned for his investigative work on organized crime. Born on September 22, 1979, in Naples, Italy, Saviano gained international fame with his 2006 book “Gomorrah” (original title: “Gomorra”), which exposes the inner workings of the Neapolitan Camorra mafia. The book, based on his in-depth research and personal observations, details the Camorra’s influence on various aspects of society and its global criminal enterprises.

“Gomorrah” became a bestseller and was adapted into both a successful film in 2008 and a TV series that started in 2014. The work earned Saviano numerous accolades but also made him a target of the mafia, resulting in constant police protection since the book’s release due to death threats.

Saviano’s writing style combines investigative journalism with a narrative approach, making complex criminal activities accessible and engaging for a wide audience. Beyond “Gomorrah,” he has authored several other books and articles focusing on corruption, crime, and social justice. His other notable works include “ZeroZeroZero,” which explores the international cocaine trade, and “La paranza dei bambini” (The Piranhas), a novel about child gangsters in Naples.

Despite the dangers he faces, Saviano continues to be a vocal critic of organized crime and corruption, using his platform to advocate for transparency, justice, and the rule of law. His courage and dedication have made him a symbol of resistance against criminal organizations and an influential figure in contemporary Italian literature and journalism.
