Roberto Saviano "dead" on Magazine Max. Roberto Saviano (born September 22, 1979) is an Italian writer and journalist. Since 2006, following the publication of his bestselling book Gomorrah (Gomorra in Italian), where he describes the clandestine particulars of the Camorra business, Saviano has been threatened by several Neapolitan “godfathers”. The Italian Minister of the Interior has granted him a permanent police escort.
Saviano, said: "I think the photomontage,
that represents me dead in morgue is of bad taste."
So the writer Roberto Saviano says the photo will appear in next issue of the Monthly Max (out next Friday) in which stands the image of his corpse lying on a stretcher to the mortuary with such identification tag tied toe, taken in perspective feet.
The news of the monthly initiative was brought forward today by some newspapers.
"A picture – says Saviano – used to cynically speculate on the condition of those like me living in Italy and abroad protected. Image profoundly disrespectful to all those who for various reasons, often out of the spotlight, risking their lives. All this pressure on my death, then left me appalled and my family. However reassure everyone: I have no intention of dying.

So the intent, according to them, was to show the side and not against Saviano. To this should also serve the small caption that accompanies the image: "I would so lifeless, reduced to silence. He has many enemies, the camorra, Berlusconi, Faith, Borriello, Daniele Sepe … But his life is already a His conviction … and our freedom are his words. " Pity that many, including the individual concerned, have not liked the "good intentions" of Max.
Roberto Saviano "morto" su Max, un fotomontaggio di cattivo gusto
Trovo il fotomontaggio che mi rappresenta morto in obitorio di cattivo gusto". Così lo scrittore Roberto Saviano commenta la fotografia che apparirà nel prossimo numero del mensile Max (in uscita venerdì prossimo) nel quale campeggia la sua immagine di cadavere steso su una barella da obitorio con tanto di cartellino di identificazione legato all’alluce, ripreso di scorcio dai piedi. Una postura – accompagnata dalla scritta “Hanno ammazzato Saviano” – che ricorda il Cristo di Mantegna e la famosa foto di Che Guevara morto.
