By Giovanni Tizian
Giovanni Tizian enthüllt detailliert, wie sich das Vordringen der Clans in die prosperierenden Regionen abspielt und wie heimisch die Bosse sich zwischen Mailand, Florenz und Venedig heute schon fühlen. Eindrucksvoll widerlegt er den Mythos vom "sauberen Norden" und "kriminellen Süden". Er deckt Strategien und Methoden auf, erläutert die lukrativsten Branchen und analysiert beispielhaft, wie die Paten vorgehen. Gesundheitswesen? Schutzgelderpressung? Hoch- und Tiefbau? So vielfältig der "Konzern" ist, so profitabel ist er. Und dabei stets bereit, über Leichen zu gehen.
