Abstract

The penetration of mafia organisations in the northern-central Italian regions is today recognised by numerous judicial investigations and various scientific studies. In Come pesci nell’acqua. Mafia, impresa e politica in Veneto, Gianni Belloni and Antonio Vesco explore the presence of the mafia phenomenon in the Veneto region, over a period of almost fifty years. Employing a large variety of empirical sources, the book analyses, through the case-study methodology, a constellation of events where the encounter between mafia groups and criminal business networks takes place in the form of corruption, tax evasion, money laundering, and a whole series of illicit practices that are considered legitimate by part of the local business and political class. The authors emphasize the need to situate the analysis as firmly as possible to the local contexts conditions that make this territory compatible with the presence of mafia groups.
