  • E’ un’agenda fitta, quella della Commissione Antimafia italiana, in missione negli Stati Uniti, tra Washington e New York. Incontri con la Dea, l’Fbi e l’UNDOC, il Congresso, le Nazioni Unite. Abbiamo intervistato Piero Grasso—ex magistrato ed ex Presidente del Senato, membro della Commissione e sua “memoria storica” per i rapporti tra Stati Uniti e Italia nel campo della lotta alla criminalità organizzata. Parliamo con lui della missione negli USA, della Convenzione di Palermo, del giudice Falcone, di Pizza Connection ma anche di giovani, dell'importanza della partecipazione, del fenomeno "Sardine" - "Legalità, libertà, verità, senso del dovere e dello Stato sono alla base della mia azione anche politica”
  • The agenda of the Italian Antimafia Commission during its mission in the United States - from Washington DC to New York - is a busy one. Meetings with the DEA, the FBI, UNDOC, Congress, and the UN. We interviewed Pietro Grasso - former judge and former President of the Senate, member and 'historical memory' of the commission regarding US-Italy relations in the field of the fight against organized crime. We discuss the mission in the US, the Palermo Convention, Falcone, Pizza Connection, but also young generations and the importance of participation, of the 'Sardine' phenomenon - "Legality, freedom, truth, sense of duty and of state are at the core of my actions, even in politics."

    To this day the full story of the murders of Falcone and Borsellino twenty years ago, while clearly a direct result of their anti-Mafia prosecutions, remains an enigma shrouded in mystery. And yet a revival of debate over the events of two decades ago began with a formal inquiry into whether or not a secret deal had been struck in 1992 between state authorities and Mafia bosses.
  • The twentieth anniversary on May 23 of the murder in Sicily of Judge Giovanni Falcone, heroic magistrate behind Palermo's famous "maxi-trial" of Mafia generals and simple soldiers, is being marked in both Italy and in the United States.
  • On May 23, University of Pennsylvania will host Alexander Stille's lecture "The Fate of an Excellent Cadaver: The Legacy of Judge Falcone; 20 Years After his Death." Organized by Italian Professionals in Philadelphia (PI-Philly), the lecture will feature an introduction by Italian Consul General to Philadelphia Luigi Scotto.
  • The crackdown on Mafia shows Italy at its best. Southern Italian cities, though plagued by many serious problems, no longer seem to be suitable places for a good mobster to hang out. That, at least, is progress.
