About Mauro De Mauro

  • Mauro De Mauro (Italian pronunciation: ['mauro de 'mauro]; 6 September 1921 – disappeared 16 September 1970) was an Italian investigative journalist.
  • Originally a supporter of the Fascist regime of Benito Mussolini he eventually became a journalist with the left-leaning newspaper L'Ora in Palermo.
  • He disappeared in September 1970 and his body has never been found.
  • The disappearance and probable death of the "inconvenient journalist" (giornalista scomodo) – as he became known as a result of his investigative reporting – remains one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in modern Italian history. Several explanations for his disappearance are current.
  • One is related to the death of the president of Italy's state-owned oil and gas conglomerate ENI, Enrico Mattei.
  • Another is that De Mauro had discovered drug trafficking between Sicily and the United States.
  • A third explanation links his disappearance with the Golpe Borghese, a planned right-wing coup d'Γ©tat (the plan failed in December 1970).
  • Apparently De Mauro was convinced that he had got hold of a story of a lifetime.
  • Before his disappearance he told colleagues at the newspaper L'Ora, "I have a scoop that is going to shake Italy."
