    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.
  • A "civic escort" for judge Antonio Ingroia and for anti-mafia magistrates such as Nino Di Matteo and Sergio Lari will be set up by a group of citizens of the city of Palermo.

  • The 1997 Mafia musical satire "Tano da morire" (finally) gets a U.S. release. There has never been a movie about the Sicilian Mafia quite like it... Surreal and often very funny, stylistically indebted to early Almodòvar and the American “trash” auteur John Waters, satirizes Mafia values and folkways, and in particular its perverse sex and gender codes

    Predictably, rhetoric marked the twentieth anniversary of the death of Leonardo Sciascia on November 20. But rhetoric was the opposite of Sciascia. If anything, the Sicilian author was about silences: pregnant silences, dangerous silences, silences that communicate entire worlds with the least nod of a head, or at most with one of the tiny handwritten notes in code, pizzini, used by Bernardo Provenzano.
  • Andy Warhol made some of the most recognizable art of the 20th century. Now two students from Palermo borrow his loud, colorful style to send a message about art and politics to their sleepy city
