Children Recruited into the Camorra Mafia

Children in the Camorra Mafia

*VIDEO QUALITY WILL BE CORRECTED IN NEXT EPISODE* Naples, Italy has been a central child recruitment center for the Camorra Mafia for decades. The Camorra is an Italian Mafia-type criminal organization and criminal society originating in the region of Campania. It is one of the oldest and largest criminal organizations in Italy, dating to the 17th century. Unlike the pyramidal structure of the Sicilian Mafia, the Camorra’s organizational structure is divided into individual groups also called “clans”. Every capo or “boss”, is the head of a clan, in which there may be tens or hundreds of affiliates, depending on the clan’s power and structure. Consequently, as Camorra clans act independently, they are more prone to feuding among themselves. The Camorra’s main businesses are drug trafficking, racketeering, counterfeiting and money laundering. It is also not unusual for Camorra clans to infiltrate the politics of their respective areas.
