Palermo, Sicily

Research today is on Palermo, Sicily. Just FYI and an interesting fact: The original Sicilian Mafia (which roughly translates as “swagger”) began in the early 1800s with no crime connotation but as an organization of people and families who were suspicious of the central authority and wanted to carry out their own justice and protection.
