Palermo Anti-Mafia Tour

We'll meet at 10 am in front of the Teatro Massimo in Palermo, to start a tour dedicated to civil mobilisation against organised crime.

After observing the Teatro Massimo from the outside, we'll head towards Piazza Beati Paoli, a place that shares its name with the secret sect mentioned by Luigi Natoli in his novel. We'll analyse the alleged link between the sect and Cosa Nostra and continue to the Mercato del Capo, under which is said to have hidden paths used by the Beati Paoli.

Our next stop will be the Piazza della Memoria, where we'll see the memorial dedicated to the magistrates killed by the Mafia. We'll then head to Palermo Cathedral, where we'll address the thorny issue of the relationship between the Mafia and the Church. Do you know the story of Don Pino Puglisi?

Passing by the Town Hall, once a symbol of the union between Cosa Nostra and politics, we'll go to Piazza Magione, in the Arab quarter of Kalsa, where Falcone and Borsellino spent their childhood. Along the way, we'll notice the logo of the critical consumption campaign "Pago chi non paga" (I pay those who don't pay), displayed on the windows of the shops that have said NO to the racket, thanks to the support of the Addiopizzo Committee, the association that has made it possible to denounce the protection money in the city.

The tour will end at the Antica Focacceria San Francesco, a true symbol of the fight against the racket where, if you wish, you can enjoy authentic Palermo street food: bread, arancini and much more... And, of course, the famous cannolo!
