As the setting for the famous mafia film Gomorra, the Le Vele di Scampia housing project has become synonymous with crime, drug abuse and murder. Franz Di Salvo’s design for the four gigantic gallery-access blocks of flats in Naples was originally hailed as a housing project that would enhance social cohesion. But poor construction materials and a lack of infrastructure turned the utopian design into a dystopia. In La Nave, his first documentary, Rotterdam photographer Hans Wilschut takes a fresh look at this doomed project. Residents talk about their hatred as well as their love of Le Vele. The demolition announced in 2016 is not the solution, although this fate seems inevitable.
