Libera Memory

On March 21 every year, Liberia celebrates the Day of Memory and Commitment to Remember the Victims of the Mafia.

Libera Land, Confiscated Properties
By Italian law, all property acquired through illegal activities is granted to third parties including private organizations, cooperatives, municipal, provincial and regional administrations. The third parties then return them to the community by converting the properties to socially beneficial uses. The confiscated lands in Sicily, Calabria, Campania, Puglia and Lazio have been taken over by cooperatives of students and have produced oil, wine, pasta, taralli, legumes, preserves and other organic goods.  Information: beniconfiscati@libera.it
