Some crimes, in particular white-collar crimes, are rarely and with many difficulties perceived as crimes. Despite the known potential social and economic damage they cause, it seems as though they were declassified, considered “less criminal” than other kinds of crimes, and therefore punished in a different way. Many specific characteristics make them less perceived and easier to tolerate than other crimes, so much that a white collar perpetrator will be easily defined as a “dishonest” person rather than a “criminal”. This article presents the redefinition of the harmful event occurred in Casale Monferrato (Italy) where one of the Eternit plants was located. The “asbestos war” begins here starting from inside the factory spreading to citizens who are not indifferent to choices which are exclusively dictated by profit motive.
