Shen Jianhe looks on as police officers conduct a check at the Shen Wu textile factory in Prato December 9, 2013. Prato, the historical capital of Italy's textile business, has attracted the largest concentration of Chinese-run industry in Europe within less than 20 years. Yet Prato is also a thriving hub of illegality committed by both Italians and Chinese, a byproduct of globalisation gone wrong, many people in the city say. Shen Jianhe lost both her job and home when Italian police shut down this garment factory under a crackdown on an industry that is booming but blighted by illegality and sweatshop conditions.
