Niccolò Ammaniti (born 25 September 1966 in Rome) is an Italian writer. As a young Italian novelist, Ammaniti was part of the cannibalistic group, from the anthology Gioventù Cannibale by Daniele Brolli (1996), for which he wrote a short novel together with Luisa Brancaccio.

In 2006, he published Come Dio comanda,[dead link] a novel where nothing should be taken at face value. A crime novel, which is also a weariless dialogue between man and God. A profound view of Italy of the underclass and unemployed where poverty and dreams, nobility and cruelty, humor and sadness are interwoven to the spectacular notion of life itself.
