Caserta, January 16 - Italian police on Wednesday
seized assets from a businessman known as the "alter ego" of the
founder of the Casalesi Camorra clan whose death threats have
forced writer Roberto Saviano into police protection.
Assets were confiscated and shares frozen in the Monza-based
Eco-Art company owned by 63-year-old Caserta businessman
Pasquale Pirolo.
Pirolo, who is formally resident in Spain, acted as front
man for Casalesi founder Antonio Bardellino in the 1980s.
They were arrested in Barcelona in 1983.
The Casalesis' criminal empire was exposed to the public by
Saviano in his 2006 bestseller Gomorrah, later turned into a
successful film.
Since then, Saviano has been living under 24-hour police
protection because of death threats from bosses including
jailed chieftain Michele Zagaria.
