The Guardia di Finanza found out that it is carrying out dozens of arrests in different Italian regions. The survey, coordinated by the DDA of Reggio Calabria, targeted the ‘entrepreneurial’ profiles of the Piromalli, the gang that operates in the Gioia Tauro plain. The financiers are also carrying out seizures of assets and businesses for over 103 million.

The precautionary measures and the kidnappings, in which about 500 financiers of the provincial and Scico commissions are engaged, were taken in Calabria, in the provinces of Reggio Calabria, Catanzaro, Cosenza and Vibo Valentia, in Sicily between Messina, Palermo, Trapani and Agrigento, in Campania – in Benevento and Avellino – in Milan and Brescia in Lombardy and in Alessandria, Gorizia, Pisa, Bologna and Rome.

The operation, coordinated by the Reggio Calabria prosecutor Giovanni Bombardieri and named ‘Waterfront’, is the epilogue of the investigations on the entrepreneurial wing of the Piromalli.
