Plastic sheeting is pictured at the A2A rubbish incinerator of Acerra 
Plastic sheeting is pictured at the A2A rubbish incinerator of Acerra February 22, 2013. Italy is nearing election day but you would have a hard time noticing it in Acerra, a scruffy industrial town just outside Naples, best known for housing one of the largest rubbish incinerators in Europe. The atmosphere in Acerra reflects the silence from the main political parties, none of which has paid much more than token lip service during the campaign to the increasingly desperate situation in the south of the country, home to one Italian in three.
