He’s a journalist with the Italian daily newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano and was the Vatican correspondent for La Repubblica.
With Carl Bernstein, he wrote the international best-seller His Holiness.
His most recent book is titled “Pope Francis Among the Wolves: The Inside Story of a Revolution”
Christiane Amanpour, CNN’s Chief international Correspondent, says of his latest book “Marco Politi is a writer for our times, with his insight, access, and wisdom about an intriguing pontiff. Few people can dig up the nuggets and jewels about such important papal matters, and what Politi knows and serves up to his readers cannot be missed.”
Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton met up with Marco Politi in a hotel café in the University City of Durham.
