Goal of the Activity

To educate and inform international students about the criminal organizations present in Italy.


The international students were received and seated in an open space. The volunteers of Libera, an association involved in fighting the Italian mafias, held an introductory presentation. Later, the participants were split into three groups. Each group had the chance to engage in three interactive lectures which were aimed to explain how the three most prominent and problematic criminal organization in Italy operate and what can be done to fight them: these are Cosa nostra (Sicilian mafia), Camorra (Neapolitan mafia) and 'Ndrangheta (Calabrian mafia). Once all three groups had the chance to learn about each of the three mafias refreshments were served to encourage informal dialogue and discussion.
