Castel Volturno is a town of about 20,000 people but in reality is almost double if you count the irregular immigrants that form the Castel Volturno ghost. Castel Volturno is the town with the strongest presence of the Nigerian Mafia in Italy, which is endorsed by the local Camorra, manages drug trafficking and the trafficking of women forced into prostitution.
The rate of drug addiction is very high, Castel Volturno is perhaps the only Italian reality that has the Crack House hidden in abandoned buildings on the sides of the main street the Domiziana, where they are consumed kilos of coca and heroin every day and where many immigrants deal drug to get it. Nigerian prostitution trafficking feeds on girls who are brought from Nigeria with the promise of a better life and are forced to contract a large debt of several tens of thousands of euros. They are then forced into prostitution to pay off their debt.
There are many homes abandoned by Italians who have left here the dream of Italian Miami and rented to African immigrants living up to 12 people for house. Building speculation has transformed the town into a narrow asphalt road with squalid hotels with pompous architecture and buildings of all kinds that are the result of unauthorized use.
