Is Naples the sick man of Italy ?

Italian Insight

The Italian newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore published today a disturbing article by Francesco Benucci and Mariano Maugeri on the decline of the former capital of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. It tells a story of bad government, especially by the Municipality, and of its consequences even on the Italian international relations, with Catalonia angered for the bad management of the leased trademark Universal Forum of Cultures.

Another article by Fabrizio Forquet, among other things, points out that the city seaport doesn’t have a President or decent railway links, and that whole districts are under the control of the local organized crime, which in the last years has been looking even worse than the Sicilian one.
