Mino Pecorelli

L'uomo che sapeva tutto

Mino Pecorelli was an Italian journalist and writer who became famous for his investigative reporting on political and financial corruption in Italy during the 1970s and 1980s. He was born in 1947 in Rome and worked for various newspapers and magazines throughout his career.

Pecorelli was particularly interested in exposing the illegal activities of the Italian political establishment, including connections between politicians and organized crime. He became a controversial figure in Italy, and his reporting often drew threats and intimidation.

On March 20, 1979, Pecorelli was shot dead in his car in Rome. His murder remains unsolved, but it is widely believed to have been politically motivated. Pecorelli was known to have had a list of compromising information on Italian politicians, and it is thought that his murder was ordered to prevent him from publishing this information.

Pecorelli's murder was one of a series of political assassinations in Italy in the 1970s and 1980s that were linked to organized crime and political corruption. The investigations into these murders, including Pecorelli's, have been marked by controversy, and many questions remain unanswered to this day.
