A wall against the mafia

 

 

For the project "Un muro contro la mafia” [A wall against the Mafia], we commissioned an artist to paint three large-scale murals in the city center of Catania.


The first mural consists of the Italian phrase “contro la mafia l’amore per la memoria l’impegno per l’azione”. It means that in combating the Mafia, it is important to preserve memory and to take action to change our social fabric.

 

In order to achieve this, in the second mural we painted the Italian judge Giovanni Falcone, his wife Francesca Morvillo and police officers Rocco Dicillo, Antonio Montinaro and Vito Schifani.

They were killed in 1992 by the mafia using a half-ton of explosives that was placed in a culvert under the motorway between Palermo International Airport and the city.




Fifty-seven days later his colleague Paolo Borsellino died in another bombing in the city center of Palermo with five police officers: Agostino Catalano, Walter Cosina, Emanuela Loi, Vincenzo Li Muli and Claudio Traina. The third mural depicts them.

 

 

Finally, we decided to draw seven catania's citizens who were killed by the mafia.

Libero Grassi, the first one shop owner who in Sicily decided to declare publicly his will not to pay pizzo.
Pippo Fava, intellectual and courageous journalist who was killed because of his inquiries.
Serafino Famà, a lawyer who was killed because of his proper exercise of the profession during a process.
Beppe montana, a police official who investigated about mafia's affairs.
Alfredo Agosta, police man who investigated about mafia's affairs.
Giovanni Lizzio, police man.
Luigi Bodenza, police man.
