Naples, January 18 - A local advertiser has
launched a poster campaign against the filming of a television
series based on Roberto Saviano's bestselling book Gomorra in
the Camorra mafia-ridden Neapolitan neighbourhood of Scampia, it
emerged on Friday.
''Scampia does not need television dramas. We don't want
Gomorra 2'' read one of the posters displayed in various parts
of the marginalised district on the initiative of Alfredo
Giacometti, who is engaged in numerous social activities in the
area.
''Those who exploit Naples are guilty of everything,
Scampia needs everything'' read another.
Naples Mayor Luigi De Magistris, Saviano, Scampia municipal
President Angelo Pisani and production companies Fandango and
Catteleya have been at loggerheads over shooting parts of the
Sky TV series in the crime-torn district, where renewed fighting
between gangs and the local camorra criminal organization is
sowing violence.
''I denied authorizations because we must stop the
instrumental exploitation of Naples and in particular this
neighbourhood,'' said the municipality's president Angelo
Pisani who has the backing of De Magistris.
''Always emphasizing the negative things, which naturally
exist, resolves nothing and confirms a negative image which
Scampia has to endure. This in spite of positive things that
are never discussed''.
Meanwhile Catteleya has said that at most only 5% of
filming for the television series would involve Scampia.
