From the Archives: Franco Roberti, Director of the Naples district Anti-Mafia units.
This is one of my favourite images, taken on a job reporting on the Camorra (the name for the Neapolitan mafia) for The Sydney Morning Herald, in Naples, Italy. I took the photo at a ceremony where the Naples Anti-Mafia police unit was opening a regional office in a palatial villa they had confiscated from the Camorra. To me, the man in the photo is so unmistakably Italian - with a touch of Dirty Harry about him.
