Francesco Fossa (Piedimonte Matese, 1966) is a journalist and a photographer, based in Rome. He works as a national reporter and foreign correspondent for Matrix, a current affairs program on Canale5 in Italy. In the past, he has worked for various Italian newspapers and magazines, including D La Repubblica, L’Espresso and Diario. He is a longtime war reporter who has worked, since 1989, in the Balkans, the Middle East, Asia and Africa. In recent years, however, he has focused once again in Italy, focusing in particular on little-known areas that are as much on the periphery of the earth as far-flung lands.
