And after the revelation of a plot by the Camorra - Neapolitan branch of the mafia - the kill Saviano, he has revealed his desire to regain his old life.
"I want my life back," he told the newspaper Repubblica.
"I want to be able to walk in the sun and the rain. I want to fall in love, to drink a beer in public - to meet my mother without her being terrified."
It emerged this week that the Camorra planned to plant a bomb on the autostrada between Rome and Naples to kill the 28-year-old writer and the group of 20 carabinieri who protect him.
