Anti-mafia, the rebellion of the whole community

Since 2004, Addiopizzo has been operating in Palermo and Sicily to promote a cultural revolution against the mafias.

Addiopizzo’s core values are individual and collective responsibility, participation, freedom, youth leadership, solidarity and social justice.


Addiopizzo’s action strategy is based on three main areas of intervention:

Critical consumption

Critical consumption is our main strategy for fighting the Mafia.

It is the collective practice of citizens and consumers to purchase in shops and businesses that said NO to pizzo (Mafia’s extortion racket / protection money).

Victim assistance

We offer free assistance to victims of extortion and usury. We accompany them in the path of liberation from the Mafia and provide them free legal, psychological and corporate support. We help them before, during and after the trial, outside and inside the courtroom.

Social inclusion

Over the years, Addiopizzo has expanded its range of action, always with the aim of putting a barrier to the material and mental control of Cosa Nostra in Sicily.
In particular, it runs social inclusion activities aimed at the prevention of discomfort and deliquency.
