⟪ Societies’ cultural heritage and identities are grounded on history and memory, nourished by survivors’ testimonials. At this regard, reinforcing collective and shared memory is a responsibility, not only to prevent from making the same mistakes, but also in order to keep on the basis of our societies. Italy, as many other countries all over the world, has been and keep suffering of criminal organizations related crimes. Victims’ families and witnesses play a crucial role to fight against crime, because they can break the circle of silence and violence they experience in their everyday life. By saying victims and witnesses of criminal organisations, we include also those people fighting against narcos in South America, civil society associations denouncing land grabbing in Africa and missing or dead youngsters’ families in Maghreb and Mashreq. Libera stands up to raise awareness in the public opinion and to defend their rights. ⟫
