It is possible to describe the history of the presence of the Calabrian ‘Ndrangheta in Northern Italy as a long, winding march, slowing down and speeding up, coming to a halt and starting up again. To be more precise, it is the history of a particular kind of mafia colonisation. Indeed, at the beginning of the new millennium, the situation in Northern Italy, especially in Piedmont, Lombardy and Emilia, can be aptly summed up by this image: while Sicilian Cosa Nostra has become weaker than before, the wealthiest and most cosmopolitan regions in Italy are experiencing an uneven process of ‘Ndrangheta colonisation. Why? To what extent is it happening? And what does it mean for the future of Italy and Europe?
