New Landlords

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

What to do with legally confiscated mafia? This is a question the Italian society has asked itself for almost 30 years now. What if the luxurious villas of the mafia, the sleazy shops of organised 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.
