New Landlords

"New Landlords: when Italian civil society moves in with the mafia"

What to do with mafia assets confiscated by the justice? This is a question that Italian society asked itself almost 30 years ago. What if the luxurious villas of the mafia, the sleazy shops of organized crime could become places of social cohesion, symbols of the reconquest of territory by the common interest?

In Italy, thanks to the efforts of anti-mafia activists and organisations, all this is no longer a utopia. From the South to the North of the peninsula, reuse projects for social purposes and solutions to restore confidence in citizens are flourishing. A Cafébabel series in 3 episodes.
