Urban criminality and criminal peripheral districts: the case of Naples - Some aspects of local culture and practices, including planning practices, connected with the camorra (mafia of the Campania region) emerge in the origin and development of the outer districts of Naples and in its social question. Naples does not have ‘one’ outer district, as in the standard European urban model, but has a new post earthquake outer ring next to the city centre, historically an occasion for the reproduction and metamorphosis of the camorra. It is not by chance that one characteristic of Neapolitan culture in the past was social promiscuity, which while it lies at the origin of the camorra’s control, is also a factor in the growth of the poorest groups in society. This belief is reflected in proposals to redefine the city centre of Naples as a university campus and the student population as a means of social mixing and economic revitalisation of the city centre.
