Abstract

[automatically translated] In distinguishing between traditional and non-traditional areas of expansion mafia is usually indicated as in the former case the power of the mafia is primarily configured as a domain of political-military type that makes use of the extensive network of relationships, otherwise defined under the meaning of share capital. In the second case, the prevailing characteristic of the Mafia is that of a pervasive penetration and diffusion within the economy and manufacturing industry. This type often ends to corroborate the thesis of contagion. At the time when the gangs penetrate - with their capital, their trafficking and their military organization - within the so-called "healthy part" of the country, you would occur the North southernization. In other words, mafias recherebbero with it the spread of ill repute even local contexts hitherto considered divorced from this logic. For a more accurate analytical view, the context of the relationship between the logic of the Mafia originated degradation and non-traditional areas is presented in a much more structured. First, it should be emphasized not only the fact that the mafia capital create a significant northern economy benefit, but also that they could not penetrate the productive without making use of local terminals located in the interstices of the economy and local politics. Second, the gangs transplanted to the North become more efficient, more viscous, more chameleon because, to take root and proliferate in northern tissue, should introject the typical dynamism of contemporary economies. The purpose of this paper is to highlight, from the case Sindona up to the most recent legal investigations on the 'Ndrangheta, that we are not faced with a permeability and unpreparedness of the economy of the northern face of the attack of mafias, but in front of an osmotic process, starting with Current Associations that form between legal and illegal worlds in the spheres of politics and economics, leads to an exchange of values, networks and patterns of behavior. Consequently, is not southernization or settentrionalizzazione that one should speak, but the porosity of the borders between legality and illegality that invests across the country as a whole. from the case Sindona up to the most recent judicial investigations' Ndrangheta, that we are not faced with a permeability and unpreparedness of the economy of the northern face of the attack of the mafia, but in front of an osmotic process that, from Current Associations that form between legal and illegal worlds in the spheres of politics and economics, it leads to an exchange of values, networks and patterns of behavior.
