Paying Your Dues – The Cost of Protection

World Premiere
Marco Battaglia, Gianluca Donati, Laura Schimmenti, Andrea Zulini | | 60 mins

The Mafia enriches itself in many ways, one of these is the demand for Pizzo, the Sicilian slang term for protection money. In Palermo 80% of businesses are believed to pay this tax to Cosa Nostra.

In 5 years their civil campaign has broken down the wall of silence that surrounds the Mafia extortion processes.
