Ketty Gabriele (1981–) sex worker, Camorristi.

Ugo Gabriele was raised in Naples, and with family connections became part of the Camorra crime family. As Ketty she adhered to the Naples tradition of a Femminiello.

She worked the Piazza Municipio, the station area, Corso Umberto, Corso Vittorio Emanuele or the avenues of Agnano and Fuorigrotta, nominally a sex worker, but she also supplied cocaine to her

After a gang war, and with the arrest and conviction of Camorra boss Paulo Di Lauro in 2005, her brother, Salvatore, became a regional boss, and he turned to Ketty to run things at Scampia, where police reckon that the drug trade grosses €500,000 a day.

She in turn was arrested in February 2009.
