Community Reviews. Showing Interview by Sophie Roell. First of all they laugh a lot, and then they kill you. Given the subject matter, to what extent is this a dangerous activity? Are you putting your own life at risk?
But since the beginning of the s quite a lot of information has become available thanks to much more vigorous action by law enforcement agencies.
So there are a lot of sources that you can read through and interpret in the comfort of your own room, without exposing yourself to any danger. But I did spend a year in Sicily in , and those were extremely tense times, when the so-called Maxi Trial was happening and Judge Giovanni Falcone managed to indict alleged Mafia members.
And I was very, very careful, as you can imagine. My story was that I was researching informal dispute settlement — how did people manage to trust one another, or find ways to settle their disputes, in an informal way? I never said that I was specifically studying the Sicilian Mafia. Some of the things that happened to me — which, by the way, gave me an indication of just how subtle with communication Mafiosi can be — are described in my new book Codes of the Underworld.
That represents death. Why did you choose this particular one? I chose it because I think it is by far the sharpest early investigation of the Mafia.
In Franchetti, the author, and a friend of his called Sidney Sonnino traveled around Sicily, and came up with a report on the conditions there, which was in two volumes. The one that was written by Franchetti was about the Mafia, which, incidentally, only got that name in Feudal laws had been repealed in , which meant that there was a very fast increase in private property in the years following.
People began to break up the big baronial and Church lands, to trade land, and private property began to appear. At the same time, another commodity was released on the open market: They found themselves without jobs, as it were. And Franchetti understood that there began to be a market for their ability to use violence, mostly in connection with settling disputes.
Those disputes arose from the fact that private property had emerged, without proper state institutions; property rights without customs that allow people to know how to handle property. So with the diffusion of land and property, there was also a diffusion of conflict.
Falcone was a Sicilian judge who did a tremendous amount of effective investigative work on the Mafia, with a level of knowledge, competence and energy that had not been seen before. And although he was then ultimately assassinated by the Mafia, he did manage to shift entirely the attitude of the Italian state towards the Mafia. Do you mean that before Falcone the Italian government thought: One thing Falcone tried to change, was to say: But given the situation, it was virtually the only effective solution that the Italian state could take.
And that has become the practice now.
Because the last thing Falcone did was to create a central anti-Mafia agency, which is still functioning today and has had a devastating effect on the Mafia.
Most of the big Mafiosi are now in jail or dead. He says: He tried to understand the entity. And he managed to persuade Tommaso Buscetta, the first big Mafioso to turn state witness, to speak. Falcone managed to understand how it functioned, the importance of language, the role of violence, the role of internal norms.
