ITALIA: Rome, drug capital of the world 

Publié: 14 juillet 2017 dans INFOS


Rome is the cocaine capital of the world. The caput mundi has become the centre of the international drug business, according to a dramatic article in La Repubblica on Friday. Roberto Saviano claims his country is turning a blind eye to the fact that Rome is the new Narcocapitale and describes in detail how a new home-grown Roman mafia has taken over the city.


Saviano, an expert on Italy’s mafias and best known for his 2006 book Gomorrah, is a somewhat controversial figure. Umberto Eco called him a “modern Italian hero”: the Daily Beast called him a plagiarist. The superstar journalist has over a million and a half Twitter followers and in the acknowledgements to his latest book, Zero, Zero, Zero he thanks Bono for his lifelong open invitation to U2 concerts, which he sometimes manages to attend, despite living under armed guard after being threatened by the Camorra.
