Emmaus Villafranca and other groups co-organise awareness-raising events in Italy on the topic of ethical finance.
Today we are the hostages of speculative finance, it is a threat to our European democracies. This type of finance dominates in governments and in the lives of citizens.
Those in power have completed a vast transfer of wealth from the poor and middle class to plundering financiers and have passed this off as being something legal.

Holding conferences with experts.
