Roberto Saviano is an Italian journalist, writer and essayist. He is the author of international bestsellers Gomorrah about Naples' Mafia and ZeroZeroZero about international illegal drug traffic.
The success of his book created numerous problems for Saviano, starting with threatening letters, silent phone calls, and, above all, a sort of environmental isolation.
Because of the threats and intimidations Saviano endured, then it was decided to assign police protection to the writer.

For those unfamiliar, I suggest you to know more about him.

That is crazy amazing! I would not have thought a result like this was even possible with pastels. I feel like I'm trying to draw with a tree trunk! I obviously have a lot to learn!

Wow! Fantastic comment, I appreciate very much!!!
There's a lot of artists better than me, but I'm really satisfied by this piece. I also would not have thought a result like this, but excercise gives great surprise! Your works are really good, with a huge amount of details, especially in hair... You are really talented!

Grazie mille Pietro! Forse ha contribuito l'enorme stima che provo per lui come scrittore/giornalista che come persona.

Wow, I say wow! Thank you sincerely Iso-pI for this wonderful comment and for your appreciation, I'm very happy you consider my work a "piece-of-art". Maybe the right inspiration came from the subject and intensity of his history. Do you know Saviano in France?

No problem, you're super talented!
Saviano is known in France. I think he is famous worldwide. I, personally never read his books...but I remember some news on tv, years ago, talking about him and his "controversial" work about the Neapolitan mafia. I also know that he lives under permanent protection. But unfortunately, that's all I know.
