(Il)legality, Emergency, and the Struggle for the Commons: Water Politics in Campania

This paper explores struggles around water as a private, public, and common good in the Southern Italian region of Campania and its capital city, Naples. It outlines how water has become a vehicle for struggles over democracy, legality, and new forms of law-and public-making in Italy. I explore battles over public water fountains, the refusal to pay bills, and the question of ownership over springs, to ask how these publics are made, in common, from within the context of austerity-ridden Italy.
