Every year Libera, throughout E!state Liberi, organizes International Camps on confiscated mafia assets. This project was born to promote the social re-use of confiscated assets: criminal buildings and lands have become common goods of social justice and democratic legality at disposal of every citizen of the world. Indeed in Italy Law n. 109/96  provides for the granting to third parties—private organizations; cooperatives; municipal, provincial and regional administrations—of all property acquired through illegal activities. The third parties then return them to the community by converting the properties to socially beneficial uses.

E!State Liberi! – the camps of commitment and education on confiscated assets – offers initiatives opened up to the international dimension, tackling broader themes of transnational mafias and global anti­mafia. And there is more. Moreover it is expected the participation of individuals and groups from abroad. The goal is to offer a wide range of opportunities for exchange and discussion between world citizens, both Italian and international, who are willing to take the challenge by providing a valuable contribution to the community through the work on the confiscated mafia assets as well as discovering new social realities and experiences either close by or distant from their context of belonging. Therefore, in addition to field activities, trainings will be also carried out on a daily basis in the form of meetings, film screenings and workshops about current mafia organizations which are increasingly structured in international networks, as well as about those other networks, also international, aimed at contrasting them.

The camp is an experience of 7-15 days in a confiscated asset, in which you are strictly in contact with the local context and its activities of social re-use. During the camp you can learn more about the history of local mafias, the memory of innocent victims and the commitment of their families to transform this experience in a new opportunity to fight against the criminal culture by a more responsible society.
