Scampia & crime

In the projects of Scampia most children do not have or live with their parents. Children have a 25% chance of getting their education, and most of the children in the area resort to selling drugs, and thieving rather than going to school.

Scampia is mostly ran by a mafia.

Most building in the area have people or dogs watching for intruders.

Police can barely keep it under control. They had to bring in an extra 1000 police officers just to help with drug trafficking, and it still has barely improved.

A video on Scampia ;

Scampia, not forgotten

Although Scampia is the projects where it seems no one would care about or be able to help. This graffiti drawing of a bird on a building brought some hope and light in.

Two Germans who painted this picture of the side of a very broke down building in Scampia say “Many of our Italian friends who saw photos of our painting automatically thought that it was a collage. To them it seemed impossible that three Germans who didn’t even speak the Neapolitan dialect had painted a bird four storeys high in one of Italy’s most infamous areas.But it was possible, and that in itself is a glimmer of light for the inhabitants of Scampia.

Without the support of a large part of the vele community, we would not have been able to complete our bird. They were delighted that we were applying colour to the very building which most of them, given the choice, would move out of immediately. The children in particular showed great interest in our project.”
