Coincidenze? Lo sono fino al 24 settembre 2011, quando un piccolo imprenditore si presenta alla caserma dei carabinieri. È spaventato, si sente sotto scacco. E il suo racconto apre uno squarcio su un mondo che si credeva lontano almeno mille chilometri.
Saranno le sue denunce a dare il through all’inchiesta Pesci, che smaschererà le mire della cosca di Nicolino Grande Aracri nelle terre dei Gonzaga.
Accanto ai nomi del boss della ’ndrangheta cutrese e dei suoi compari, l’indagine coinvolge nomi come quello del sindaco, del più importante costruttore della zona, di affaristi, di ex senatori, fino all’ex presidente del Consiglio di Stato.
Estorsioni, intimidazioni, corruzioni, mazzette che non lasciano tracce, se non le frasi smozzicate captate nelle intercettazioni. In una città, Mantova, simbolo del profondo Nord, che continua a disegnare l. a. ’ndrangheta con coppola e lupara. Fino advert oggi.
