From Milan to Rome, from Emilia-Romagna to Calabria, from the Adriatic to the Tyrrhenian Coast: infiltrations by new and old mafias connect Northern and Southern Italy, revealing the strength of crime organizations that are not satisfied to control only their native regions. The map of organized crime in Italy has changed, and Italian criminal groups are stronger than ever, inside and outside the country. The traditional ‘mafioso’ stereotype has crushed: old-fashioned coppola-and-lupara gangsters have been replaced by fancy modern criminals, who are well-introduced in financial and political environments. Building industry, health service, waste management, high finance: in a global economy, mafia, ’ndrangheta and camorra know how to diversify their business. So, investigative journalism is more than ever essential to recognize unknown dangers and evolving events. Alberto Nerazzini, who’s been reporting on organized crime for years, will present some powerful tools that journalists can use to dig out hidden truths, combining insights into judicial inquiries with field research and interview techniques.
