Rome's Cinecittà is the most densely populated neighborhood in all of Europe, hard by the city's ring road and home to one of Rome's first shopping malls. There, in the vicinity of the film studios, a large anonymous building, which could be apartments, is invaded every day by an army of 'flexible' employees who work in the call center of a major telecommunications company. They are the legions of the new poor, workers without a future; Ascanio Celestini reconstructs their forms of organization, their struggles, their blatant exploitation and enforced, blanket isolation: from the labor unions, the political parties, the society, and the state.
