Learn about the Mafia and the civil Anti-Mafia movement whilst walking through the picturesque historic centre of Palermo. Discover a city that is finally rebelling against the protection rackets.
The Teatro Massimo, the Mercato del Capo, Piazza della Memoria at the Court, Piazza Beati Paoli, the Cathedral, the Police Headquarters, the Town Hall, Piazza Magione: each stage offers the opportunity to reflect on the Mafia phenomenon and civil mobilization against the mafia.
You will meet shopkeepers who have said NO to the pizzo, who follow the ethical consumer campaign "Pago chi non paga" (I shop where they don't pay pizzo), a campaign promoted by Addiopizzo to support those that rebel against the Mafia.
The tour ends at Antica Focacceria San Francesco, one of the oldest restaurants in Palermo, famous for the charateristic Palermo's street food. Its owners have had the courage to denounce their extortionists.
