The center of Sicily’s biggest city was emptied by the mafia. Now it’s being reclaimed by migrants.

Stashed in: Italy, Italy!

"Throughout the 20th century, Sicily’s mafia has exerted power on Palermo’s economic and commercial activity. For instance, a local boss would regularly demand a pizzo or payment from merchants in exchange for permission to do business. These dynamics are commonplace for locals, but migrants are less willing to submit, and this defiance threatens the decades-old system of control."


Seems like this is good for the city. 

Hopefully this will save Palermo, before it is too late.

I hope so!
