The name of the town is sadly linked to mafia violence, both historical and film fiction. The names of Riina and Provenzano still have their weight, as do those of fictional characters such as Francis Ford Coppola’s “Don Corleone”. But beyond the clichés, the real Corleone is hidden.
Together with an activist from a local association, you will discover the most genuine soul of the country, the strong commitment to anti-mafia ransom and the beauty of its breathtaking landscapes.
You will be able to learn more about the history of the peasant movement, inextricably linked to the fight against the mafia between the end of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century. You will discover how Placido Rizzotto and Bernardino Verro, leaders of those movements and for this brutally killed, have become the symbol of the Corleonese anti-mafia.
Among the stages, the Laboratory of Legality, built in a property confiscated from the Provenzano family, with the works of the Sicilian painter Gaetano Porcasi, which illustrate some salient moments in the history of the mafia and anti-mafia in Corleone.
