WHAT IS PALERMO?

Addiopizzo started in Palermo, Sicily in 2004. When a group of young graduates considered opening a pub in Palermo, they had to consider the possibility of being extorted by the local mafia. Extortion (“pizzo”) money is usually referred to as “protection” money in Mafia-related television shows and movies in the United States. The graduates decide to take a stand against the mafia and on the night of June 28-29, 2004, they display more than 100 stickers in the center of Palermo. The stickers proclaimed: “A whole population that pays for pizza is a population without dignity”.

You might be tempted to say “is that all it took?” ending decades of mafia extortion, violence and murder. However, this was only the beginning of this movement to unite the Sicilian people and motivate them to protect themselves and themselves from racketeers. Here is a link to an article from 2017 in Politico which talks about the progress made by the Addiopizzo movement since 2004.



Louis understood. He bet $8,000 and that took him to $16,200.

Margaret understood that too. She bet it all to end up with $17,200.
