Antimafia Walking Tour Palermo

Antimafia Walking Tour Palermo

Each stop offers an opportunity to reflect on the mafia as well as on the civil mobilisation against it.

Discover the traces of the courage to say no.

Discover the Sicilian capital led by an activist from Addiopizzo - a grassroots movement established in Sicily to build a community of businesses and consumers who refuse to pay Mafia extortion money, "pizzo" - through an itinerary along highly symbolic places of the fight against the Mafia.

Along the way, your guide will share reflections on the Mafia and on civil mobilisation against mafia power. You will also meet some of the businesses who said no to paying the extortion money by joining the Addiopizzo campaign "I pay who does not pay" ("Pago chi non paga" in Italian) in support of those who resist the Mafia.
