How many things do you throw away each day? Imagine if one day, we throw away too much. So much that over million tons of garbage start pilling up on the streets until we cannot circulate around or even get into our houses anymore. Causing the whole city to evacuate and leave the once glorious town as a dumpsite. The sign of this situation once occurred in Italy during 2008-2010, when 250,000 tons of garbage start piling up on the sidewalks of Naples, caused by the Camora, the local mafia’s influence on municipal waste disposal business as well as bad management of landfills.

In 2050, the condition comes back with more extreme result, the officials cannot control the situation anymore and it rapidly take over the whole city, even the area around historically important sites are blocked out, forcing buildings to close down. In consequence, the government decided to close down the fully packed landfill around the city, causing almost a million habitants to evacuate due to the hazardous effects of degrading waste, leaving Naples as the new official dumpsite of Italy.
