No Pizza for You, Mafia Scum
Briefly, Palermo foccacceria, in business for ever, feeds Lucky Luciano a lot when he is doing his mafioso thing in the 30s and 40s, then gets hit on in the noughties for protection money and stands up against it, hiring a lawyer with real balls, Stefano Giordano, to take the scum to court. Natch the lawyer has had death threats.
Glad to report, natch he is not backing down.
This is a Sicialian recovery story - they are still stuck with the blight of organised crime but trying hard to combat it.
Now that is a lawyer I can salute.
