Gomorrah: Infiltrating the Mafia

May 1, 2008 | CUNY Graduate Center | New York City

Cosponsored by the Martin E. Segal Theater Center, The Graduate Center, CUNY, and The Italian Cultural Institute

With Antonio Monda & Roberto Saviano

When Roberto Saviano decided to investigate the Neapolitan mafia and write a book about its illegal activities, he never believed he would have an international best-seller on his hands, or that he would be living surrounded by bodyguards because his name was at the top of the mafia’s hit list. Antonio Monda, whose next novel is set in a very different Naples—that of the elite—will discuss politics, corruption, and justice with this young journalist whose reporting of the truth has put his own life in danger.
