Italian journalist Roberto Saviano rose to international fame after the publication in 2006 of his acclaimed book Gomorrah, a detailed investigation of the activities of the Neapolitan mafia, which was also adapted into a film and a TV series. But along with the praise and numerous prizes for his work, he also became the target of death threats from the Camorra crime syndicate, which resulted in him having to live under permanent police protection. He has since written further exposés of organised crime, including ZeroZeroZero about the cocaine trade.
