Roberto Saviano 'Gomorrah'
Saviano traded in his former life in 2006, with the publication of his best-seller 'Gomorrah'. The book was an expose of the Camorra; a Neopolitan crime syndicate, presided over by "godfather" Mafiosos. Since then, sixteen mafia ringleaders have been sentenced to life in prison. The barrage of death threats he and his family have received has made life impossible.
Seize your chance: Roberto Saviano Interview 2015
On 1 July, Saviano makes a very rare appearance in London at the Royal Geographical Society, courtesy of Intelligence Squared. In conversation with senior BBC Foreign Correspondent Fergal Keane, Saviano will shed some light on his life in hiding and his decision to take down the Camorra.
New Book 'Zero Zero Zero' (2015)
Saviano will also discuss his latest journalistic assault on organised crime, Zero Zero Zero. This new work excavates the underworld of the global cocaine trade, with some stomach-churning findings.
This event is a rare chance to see Saviano; the man who took down the mafia and proved that the pen is still mightier than the sword.
