Federico Ruffo, author to the reportage about Juve we recently introduce you, has been victim of a try of attempt in his home in Ostia.

We are not a news website but we think is important to show our support to a great professional like him.

Here the non-professional translation of the Report post – here the original – made to introduce the video in which Federico explains how he noticed in the middle of the night strange noises thanks to his dog, that probably saved his and his family lives.


Report journalist Federico Ruffo has been victim of a try of incendiary attempt last night in his Ostia house.

Our colleague, author of a reportage on the death of a Juventus collaborator involved in scalping and on the relationship between ‘Ndrangheta, ultras and some manger of bianconeri, has been awaked around 4 am by unknown that scattered with gasoline first the entrance of the building where he lives with his family, then the landing and the entrance door of his apartment, with the apparent intent to burn.

Assailants escaped disturbed by the dog, but first they painted with a red spray a Cross on landing wall.

Ostia Carabinieri, that are investigating on the fact, after the routine surveys, obtained also the material related with the repeated attacks and death threats that Federico Ruffo and program presenter Sigfrido Ranucci have been victim of through social networks, both before and after the reportage “Una signora alleanza” was broadcasted.

During past weeks, moreover, Ruffo have been victim of bad episodes, obliged to leave some public place because of some unpleasant behaving directed to his person by some so-called juve fans.

By reiterating our nearness to Federico and his family, we consider fundamental to keep high attention around journalists security that, fighting in front line for information, are victim of an increasing violence and intolerance atmosphere. Towards these colleagues and to such serious facts it is necessary that all the category closes ranks.”
