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.”

Bomb reportage on Juve


It could seem off topic but this could be something so big it is important to be spread.

A bomb reportage about a mysterious suicide of a Juve fan is about to be broadcasted by Italian Rai 3 well-know TV program “Report” on 22nd of October. Behind that, as anticipated via twitter by Report account, “relationships between spies, ultrà, mafia and players. Unpublished documents reveals some prestigious football managers hypocrisy”


In the teaser you see Beppe Marotta – that in these days officially left Juve – avoid journalist Federico Ruffo @FedericoRuffo question about the death Juve employee.

The journalist wrote this yesterday on his Facebook public profile by presenting the teaser. ***this is a not professional translation, to see original post screenshot at the end of the article***

We want to officially thank you Federico Ruffo for his professionality and his strength.

So he wrote: “I write it now, knowing that next month will be tough, full of hate, insults, insinuations, knowing that for years I will be known as the ‘mercenary bastard that sully Juventus because: 1- is a Roma fan; 2-  wants to rise the audience; 3 – he is paid by anti-juve lobbies. I AM JUVENTINO. since always. I grew up studying the unnatural and elegant Platini pelvis twisting. I stared at ball fixed to Baggio foot against all physics laws, until believing that football wouldn’t have any relevance after him. Behind my eyes I still have fragments of Del Piero scoring, Zidane infinite levers, blind and uncontrolled Nedved fury, Trezeguet sly smile, laboring Conte Juve, until the unnatural fight to re-emerge from serie B.

I still feel the bitter of tears after Borussia, after Mijatovic gol, after Manchester penalties.

I am juventino, since always. In Rome, where being a juve supporter should be prized with a medal.

I am juventino, and I believe that the jersey goes beyond men and historical moments, a part from who track, write, engrave history.

I am juventino but before everything else I’m a journalist. And as a journalist I know that this reportage has nothing related with football: there is a man who lost his life, leaving a 10 years old son full of rage and questions and all of them deserves answers.

Here is talking about money, ‘Ndrangheta, stadium criminals and manager with a double ethics. It is one of most important works I ever made in years of career, brought on for love of sport, the true one, and for love of support, the one that doesn’t need to make money on other people’s passion.

Watch it.

Soon, really soon we will be back on TV.”
