Mario Magarò



Freelance investigative journalist and researcher based in Barcelona.

I’m currently involved in the coverage of the ongoing Catalan political crisis.

As a former correspondent in the Andean region, mostly out of Bolivia and Peru, I reported on a wide range of topics such as politics, narcotraffic and illegal gold mining. I cover breaking news and features stories for TV, print, online and radio outlets.

I’m interested in investigating illegal supply chains of mineral resources as well as the social and environmental impact of extractives industries in South America. I produce, film and edit my own work and I’m fluent in Italian, Spanish and English.
