You will be accompanied by our tour guide on a visit to Corleone Sicily, one of the most interesting places close to Palermo, sadly best known as the birthplace of the Mafia, and Totò Riina. You will learn many interesting points about the Sicilian Mafia yesterday and today. From the 1960s onwards, the town became infamous as the home to some of the most powerful Mafia clans -the Corleonesi- who established their headquarters there. The name of the town was also adopted as the surname of the main protagonist of Francis Ford Coppola's movie: The Godfather. The town has a small and very beautiful historical center. In Corleone you can visit the Anti-Mafia Museum, which holds a huge collection of documents and pictures related to some of the most critical mafia conflicts. It will be, without doubt, a unique opportunity to better understand the Sicilians' distaste for the mafia, and how so many honest judges and police have risked their lives in their fight against it. With the 1986 dossiers of the maxi-trial and the photography exhibition of Letizia Battaglia, our tour guide will walk you through an emotional journey which cannot but move you.
FromCorleone you will then go to Piana degli Albanesi, situated in a natural reserve. As you will see in the Museo Civico, the inhabitants of the Piana have maintained their ancient costumes and traditions to these days. In the museum you will have the chance to see a collection of attires and relics linked to the city folklore. Piana degli Albanesi it is also linked to a very violent happening: the carnage of Portella di Ginestra on May 1st1947 in which 11 workers have been killed.
Following the visit, you will have the chance to taste one the Sicilian sweet specialties: the cannoli. “Leave the gun - take the cannoli”. After the tasting your guide will explain to you this famous quote of Peter Clemenza from the movie “The Godfather”.
