4 editions published in 2009 in German and Italian and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Macht, Geld, Blut. Damit werden die Einwohner der Provinzen von Neapel und Caserta tagtäglich konfrontiert. Nur eine privilegierte Minderheit kann überhaupt daran denken, ein normales Leben zu führen. Die süditalienische Mafiaorganisation Camorra mischt mit im internationalen Drogenhandel, verschiebt riesige Mengen Giftmüll, macht gewaltige Geschäfte mit der Herstellung von Designermode, hat praktisch das Monopol auf den Handel mit Zement und Geschäftsbeziehungen, die von Deutschland bis nach China reichen. GOMORRA beschreibt die suggestive Kraft der Camorra, die Operationen, mit denen die Clans ihre Macht behaupten und die Manipulationen, mit denen sie ihre schmutzigen Geschäfte in Gang halten. Ein Film, der auf dem Weltbestseller von Roberto Saviano beruht, der trotz massiver Morddrohungen weiter mutig über das Verbrechen als System spricht und die Menschen wachzurütteln versucht.
