Fabrizio Gatti (born 9 March 1966) is an Italian investigative journalist and author. He writes for the Italian weekly l'Espresso and his reportage and undercover investigations have been translated all over the world. Gatti has travelled most of the routes of immigration into Europe. Between 2003 and 2007 he also crossed the Sahara desert four times with hundreds of migrants, infiltrated a gang of human traffickers in Northern Africa as a gangster's personal driver, was rescued at sea, was jailed in the Lampedusa detention centre as an Iraqi illegal migrant, and worked as a slave labourer on a tomato farm in Italy. Gatti told all his undercover experiences from Africa to Europe in the book «Bilal: My undercover journey into the modern slave-trade» (Rizzoli). The book was also published in French, German, Norwegian and Swedish. Born in Milan, he started his career in 1991, writing mostly about illegal immigration, first on Corriere della Sera and, from 2004, on l'Espresso.
