The Sails of Scampia (Vele di Scampia, in Italian) are an example of how architecturecan influence thebehavior of citizens, or at least, how it can be used for unlawful purposes quite successfully.During the 80s the Camorra criminal organization managed to establish itself in the Sails of Scampia, then a newly created neighborhood in Naples.
