Italy and France

The Neapolitan mafia - or 'camorra' - are notorious, so what's it like to grow up in their shadow? Not as a victim, but as the child of a mafioso? Alan Johnston meets Luigi Di Cicco a man whose childhood was tainted by violence, and whose imprisoned father was largely absent from his upbringing. He finds that man determined to avoid a similar fate.

Meanwhile, in Paris, a densely-populated city where many live in apartment buildings, Joanna Robertson discovers the ins and outs of neighbourly etiquette among people quite literally living on top of one another. But is there still a charming way of asking the residents upstairs to keep the noise down?
