Summary note
"Le Vele di Scampia" is a futuristic housing estate in northern Naples and a Camorra battlefield. Conceived by Francesco di Salvo in the late seventies and widely recognized for their urbanistic, "Le Vele" (The Sails) were squatted by mafia families even before completion. Today the building complex is a symbol of the Camorra's power in the Naples region and a key centre of European drug trafficking. Matteo Garrone shot his movie "Gomorra" based on the novel by Roberto Saviano on the site in 2008. Tobias Zielony's film "Le Vele di Scampia" from 2009 originates in this very place. Seven thousand single images, shot at night with a digital single-lens reflex camera, are used to create nine minutes of animation film. The book "Vele" is based on this animation film with an selection of 287 single images.--Publisher.
