‘I’m afraid of many things,’ the Italian journalist Roberto Saviano has said. ‘But dying isn’t one of them.’ As the author of Gomorrah, the internationally bestselling exposé of the workings of the Neapolitan crime syndicate the Camorra, Saviano faces the possibility of retribution every day. For the past nine years, he has lived under constant armed guard, ever since his book pointed the finger at crime bosses and helped secure life sentences for 16 mafia ringleaders.

Roberto Saviano will make a rare appearance in the UK when he comes to the Intelligence Squared stage. In conversation with BBC foreign correspondent Fergal Keane, Saviano will talk about his life in hiding and his beginnings as a reporter on the streets of Naples.
