The battle between the entity often called the Mafia and folks who are against this entity and its practices apparently still goes on here in Palermo, Sicily. In fact, there is a large austere monument just outside the Old Town area that commemorates the deaths of thirteen prominent folks who were lost in the ongoing conflict. You can Google “the thirteen” or “xiii vittime” to learn more about who these folks were and the current state of affairs in this battle. . .fascinating reading as it appears that protection is still paid, but as usual, who is paying whom?, how much?, to what end?, etc. are all questions that can never be answered accurately. And whatever you do, please do not come here to ask questions. . .this will only lead you down dark alleyways from which you may never emerge. Just pop in, enjoy yourself, show love and respect to everyone around you, and you will get nothing but love and respect in return. . .saluti!
I send you fascinating vibes from Palermo, Sicily. . .feel them. . .they run as deep as the deepest ocean.
