"La campagna rapimenti" may refer to the season of the kidnapping made by the "Anonima Sarda" a Sardinian criminal organisation, in the years from the 60's to the 90's.

There are a few errors:
Dove fuggi in Italia = where can you hide/escape, in Italy
I campioni del mondo sono in Italia = the world champions (of soccer) are in italy.
I più pericolosi sono in Italia= thes most dangerous (people) are in Italy.
Voti persi e voti certi = lost votes and sure votes.

I hope to have been helpful.
Viola.
