LIVING THE HIGH LIFE

by Fabio Leli

synopsis

Italy is under attack. The invader is not a foreign state. The enemy is hard to identify, but its presence on Italian territory is already so widespread and deep-rooted that it can easily be taken for an ally. It’s legalized gambling, a perfect money-making machine which last year alone whipped 100 billion euros out of Italians’ pockets. An invisible tax, paid voluntarily. A tax on the people. It is a vicious circle that has economic, political, media and cultural facets, all adapted to a single overriding purpose: profit. But the people making the money are very few, while those facing hardship and poverty are many. Because one thing is for sure – the only to win at gambling is to run the game.
