How to join the Addiopizzo Network
Addiopizzo summons the economic operator who’s interested in joining the network for a first preliminary interview, during which he/she is asked to present the history and characteristics of their own economic business.
During the same or a following meeting, the Association requests the documents (business profile, judiciary, administrative or journalistic charges) and/or other elements of any nature that can sustain the evaluation for their inclusion in the network.
Successively, Addiopizzo proceeds to evaluate the consistency of the elements provided and what has been said by the requesting party, to independently search for other elements relating to the business of the interested party, consulting public acts, means of information and the related professional associations.
The association requests in any case the subscription of a formal and written declaration of commitment before the citizens/consumers not to pay the pizzo, directly or indirectly, and to respect the principle of legality in the exercise of their own business, as a necessary condition for the inclusion and the permanence in the list of the businesses to support.
After the conclusion of the inquiry, Addiopizzo will communicate the result of such activity to the interested party, giving, in case of a positive outcome, the official sticker for the window shop. The list will be spread among all the consumers who adhered to the initiative in the forms that will be deemed more appropriate.
The eventual assessment of a lack of respect of the commitment subscribed through the aforementioned declaration will constitute a reason for the deletion from the list and a contextual communication of the latter on the website of the association.
