Addio Pizzo

 

 

 

 

Addiopizzo is a unique grassroots organisation, formed in Palermo in 2004 by a group of extraordinary youngsters.   They wanted to stay in Sicily after finishing their university degrees, instead of having to emigrate in search of work, as many other young Sicilians do.  They decided to revolutionise and reclaim their city from the protection rackets operated by criminal organisations which, for too long, have been strangling Palermo and other parts of the island.  Discover how they are doing this through their informative walking tours of Palermo or a visit to the infamous town of Corleone.
