The land on which we live, is sadly called "La
Terra dei Fuochi"
(the Land of Fires). Rest assured that this is not our
invention, nor something that we have discovered...
But from now on, thanks to all our efforts - no-one
can ever justify to himself again, or hide behind
another banal statement like "it’s not true"..."we
didn’t know"..."I never imagined".
Incinerators ? Even Worse !!
Fires that not only burn, but poison
us. Every day, hundreds of “little” fires burn throughout the
Provinces of Naples & Caserta. In particular, in the
territories of Giugliano, Qualiano and Villaricca, sadly nick-named “the
land of fires” in the best selling book “Gomorra”.
In his book, the author and journalist, Roberto Saviano, tells us
the painful truth. Actually, we can say with certainty and he was
probably “too kind” in his description. From our collection of video
footage which provides concrete proof, and considering the current
situation, the phenomenon is much more serious than even we could have
ever imagined. With our commitment, we have “simply” provided and made
public all the evidence.
In these deliberate fires everything is burned. To add
“fuel to the fire” it is predominantly Hazardous Waste, material
that should never be burned, much less thrown in the street.
Least of all, in the country, within proximity to animal and fruit ,
fruit farms and agriculture of every kind.
It seems that thissociety has lost its civility.
Nonetheless, I am faithful and optimistic. That is
why, along with some friends, we have given life to this space to
denounce and inform.
We believe that the thousands of people that live in our territory are
not truly aware. In fact, even if someone does see, they perhaps
do not have any idea of how truly grave and dramaticthe
situation really is.
Everyone needs to know,
from the “good” to the “bad”.
Nothing in this world could and should ever justify how much is
happening, undisturbed, right in front of our own eyes. In the morning,
just like the afternoon…in the evening, but evenworsein
the night, when the darkness hides the black smoke.
The fires are often small, hidden within small country roads that are
That is why everything is contaminated.
There are those who say that all of this does not exist, that it is not
true. Stop it NOW!
It is useless to hide behind one finger.
Everything is INCREDIBLY TRUE.
To those who do not believe, we say:
Whoever DENIES the evidence WANTS their land, their CHILDREN, and all
those that live here, HARMED.
Conspiracy of silence is complicity. Silence is consent.
Even if different entities are already aware of this phenomenon, once
again, in the name of civil duty and for the umpteenth time…
to all the Institutions that represent, administer and protect us, we
turn to you for a CONCERNED APPEAL:
STOP THIS DESTRUCTION & SLAUGHTER!!!
We can stop drinking the water from our land. We can even
stop eating the food from the land on which we live. The one
thing we cannot do, is stop breathing the its air !
We are making our air "unbreathable", even without industry.
When are we going to wake up ??

For the very first time “La Terra dei Fuochi” - The Land of
Fires - comes out of the Net!
Up until recently, held in limbo only by literary invention or in
the minds of the few, our news has spontaneously awakened the
interests of the journalistic minds of TG3 National. On
September 2nd, 2008, on Rai 3, at TG3
National at 7:00 p.m. a report from Rai journalist, Romolo
Sticchi, went on the airwaves.
The following day, during the evening and nightly news reports, and
for the very first time, also TgR Campania spoke about this
serious and alarming problem. It is extremely important!
It is the first official admission of the existence of these
In spite of everything, we demonstrated a theory. From
this moment on, Naples and The Campania Region know that the Land
of Fires exists and is a harsh reality!
We will not let the floodlights of information, and attention, be
