A founding member of the grassroots group Addiopizzo spoke with us about the organization’s efforts to combat the mafia. Through convincing customers to shop only at establishments that don’t pay pizzo—“protection” money the mafia demands of shop owners that really only protects shops against the mafia—Addiopizzo has created a network of establishments that have taken a stance against paying pizzo. As the group’s motto states, “Un intero popolo che paga il pizzo è un popolo senza dignità.” By hindering the mafia economically, the group hopes to decrease not only the mafia’s political and social influences, but also Sicily’s association with the mafia. And so while I did send the photo above to my mom with the caption, “This is where Sofia died in the Godfather!!” I made sure to note after that we were on an “anti-mafia” tour and that, as our tour guide emphasized, this is the largest theater in Italy and the third largest in the world.
