Naples: Anti-usury agreement between the Notarial Council and the San Giuseppe Moscati Foundation – a non-profit anti-usury solidarity fund



On Tuesday 10 May 2011 in the Sala Valeriano in Piazza del Gesù in Naples, an agreement was signed between the Notarial Council of the United Districts of Naples, Torre Annunziata and Nola and the Fondazione San Giuseppe Moscati, Fondo di Solidarietà Antiusura Onlus of Naples.

The initiative had its origin in the awareness that usury weighs on the social and economic fabric of the district, damaging the possibilities of development and well-being of the community.

In this context, the Notarial Council undertakes to provide free advice on matters of a notarial nature and to apply greatly reduced fees for the drawing up of mortgages for the victims of usury, in accordance with current laws, given the considerable social value of the initiative.

The Foundation will be able to turn to those notaries in the District who make themselves available for the purpose.

In his address, the President of the Notarial Council, Antonio Areniello, emphasised amongst other things the social role played by the notariat, with particular attention to phenomena having substantial impact on the life of the community, and expressed profound agreement with the Foundation’s goals and the Council’s readiness to assist in a concrete manner.
