The Tamburi district of Taranto borders with Ilva, Europe’s largest steel mill. Marked by suffering and grief, the inhabitants tell their story of a land sacrificed to the demands of an unhinged capitalism that doesn’t care about the damage done to people by harmful and deadly dioxin emissions, which have tragically increased the spread of tumors and the loss of human lives, including children.
