    The mountains of burning trash in Naples is devastating. Is there a solution? Not really, this is corruption, politics and simple stubbornness in a long a deepy embedded history. Unfortunatly it is all related to the Camorra (the neapolitan mafia) it isn’t in their best-interest to dispose of the trash, so let it stay in the streets, in the end, they are the power structure down there, they give their hand-outs to the whole city. It isn’t in anyone’s best interest to clean it up. Oddly it goes unnoticed.

    On that note, there is a great book by Roberto Saviano which is being translated into English and coming out, I believe in September, called Gomorra. Not so much about trash, but about how the Camorra has stuck their paws into every inch of the city of Naples, trash plays a big role in that.

    Interesting and terrifying stuff, I recommend it. It’s no “Under the Tuscan Sun”!

    Thanks for the book rec, Jenny! And keep the insider insight coming, I might just have to make a category just for the trash of Italia.
