Discovering the anti-mafia rebellion

Palermo, Italien

Oplevelse med værten Edoardo

  1. 3 timer
  2. Sprog: Engelsk, Fransk og Italiensk

Det skal I lave

You will walk with me or one of my fellow team members through the main roads and the back streets of the picturesque old town. You will learn about the Mafia, its brutal violence and its business, as well as about the people who stood up against the power of the organised crime.

We will stop in front of monuments, memorials and shops, each is connected with a particular aspect of our story. Sometimes a small detail, that seems unsignificant at first glance, has a story behind it that is worth to be told.

You will meet shopkeepers who have said NO to the protection money and hear their stories: you will also have the chance to support them, just buying a gelato, some local products or a souvenir of Palermo.
Other things to note
You can recognize me because at the meeting point I will have a "No Mafia" bagpack on my shoulder.

IMPORTANT! The tour is offered in English, Italian or French, depending from the dates. Please scroll down this page and choose the correct date/language in the section "SEE MORE DATES".

I was born and live Palermo, Sicily. I graduated in History and I work as a trip leader. I love to get in contact with different people and cultures, either by traveling or by meeting my guests here.
I think that the best way to express our love for our country is to show its most authentic face and to try to change what we do not like about it. This is why I am an activist in an anti-mafia movement called Addiopizzo, which encourages the shopkeepers to rebel against the protection racket.
I have been volunteering for Addiopizzo since the beginning, in 2004. I am proud to say that many things have changed since then. On behalf of Addiopizzo I give speeches and lead tours: people are eager to learn what the Mafia really is, behind the stereotypes. I can give them my personal experience as a Sicilian and as an activist.

Om organisationen: Addiopizzo Travel



Addiopizzo is a grass-roots Anti-Mafia movement, founded in Palermo in 2004. Its mission is to push the community to rebel against protection racket.

Her skal du være

Starting from the magnificent Teatro Massimo, symbol of the rebirth of Palermo after the terrible years of the Mafia violence, we will explore the traditional open-air market, stop at the memorial dedicated to the victims of the Mafia, discuss about the role of the Church in front of the Cathedral and that of the politics at the City Hall, pass through piazza Magione and end the tour at the famous restaurant Antica Focacceria San Francesco.

The guide was really engaged and knowledgeable, which made this tour excellent. Her english was perfect and she was very nice too. I have got a bigger understanding of the Maffia problem and maybe about the Sicilianos as well.

Die Führung war sehr interessant, ich hätte mir noch mehr Geschichten über das tatsächlich Geschehen der Mafia gewünscht, für mich persönlich hatte es mehr Stadtführungs-Charakter. Die Guide*in war sehr nett und pünktlich!!

Eine ganz nette Stadtführung, aber aus meiner Sicht viel zu wenig Informationen zum eigentlichen Thema der Tour. Würde ich nicht noch mal buchen.

Ermes ci ha accompagnato in luoghi simbolo per la lotta alla mafia e ci ha illustrato molto dettagliatamente come avviene la richiesta del pizzo da parte delle associazioni mafiose e come la loro attività lavora per combattere questo fenomeno, una esperienza davvero interessante! Assolutamente consigliata!
