Viviana’s mother, Renata Fonte, was Councillor in charge of the Municipality of Nardo in the south of Italy. In 1984, when Viviana was ten years old, her mother was killed in a mafia hooting as a result of her opposition to real estate speculation on a local nature preserve. Today, Viviana is president of Libera Association, a network of more than 1,200 political and cultural associations, groups and schools committed to promoting and creating a culture of lawfulness while fighting against the mafia and other organized crime groups. Their activities include promoting laws, which convert real estate confiscated from organized crime into public property; promoting democratic principles and fighting against corruption; running camps for anti-mafia ducation; and promoting work, development and economic fairness.
