    Default Quick question for the EyeTalions

    Maybe twice a year my neighbor will fly this flag for the Republic of Venice or get extra Veneto with it. Should I be nervous?




    I did take a deep dive into it's historical significance and meaning on Wikipedia. It turned out to be one of those territorial struggles of independence for a specific region. Regardless.. way more interesting than discussing Zimbobby and their lack of capers, fine wine, or cured meats.

    Mafia murder boy of THREE after his grandfather failed to repay debt to Italian mafia

    A three-year-old boy has been murdered by the mafia, who then burnt his body, after a drug debt between rival clans went unpaid, investigators believe.
    The body of Nicola Campolongo was found over the weekend in a burned-out car behind an abandoned farmhouse. Alongside it were the corpses of his grandfather Salvatore Iannicelli, 52, and his girlfriend Ibtissa Touss, 27.
    The killing of a toddler has shocked even hardened investigators in Italy, where bosses have long perpetrated the myth that the mob doesn't hurt women and children. In reality there have been many innocent victims of the criminal organisations over the years.

    ‘Problem with mafia films is they don’t show they killed children and women in the street’

    ‘I look at my photographs, it’s just blood, blood, blood,’ Letizia Battaglia says.

    At 83, Letizia Battaglia can look back over decades of groundbreaking work and some 600,000 images as a photojournalist and later, as the photography director of a left-wing newspaper in Palermo, Sicily, from 1974 to 1990.
    Her career both mirrors and chronicles the mafia’s most murderous years with extraordinarily moving tableaux of everyday violence. “I look at my photographs, it’s just blood, blood, blood,” she says during Kim Longinotto’s Shooting the Mafia, a new documentary portrait of Battaglia.
    “The more we read about Sicily and the mafia, the more we questioned the glamour of mafia movies,” Longinotto says. ”We’ve all seen Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather. I was reading about Coppola and supposedly he said that he didn’t know anything about the mafia when he was making The Godfather. He based them on his family. And I thought: yes, that’s the problem.
    “In mafia films, they’re always these glamorous cowboy types in sharp suits and played by beautiful people like Al Pacino. Or they have the great writing of The Sopranos. You don’t see them in the way that the people of Sicily saw them. You don’t learn about the code of silence and how an entire society was brutalised. You hear about code of honour. You don’t know that they killed children and women in the street.”

    Children murdered by the Mafia as Italian mobsters sink to new low


    With his plaintive doe eyes staring directly into the camera, little Domenico Petruzelli radiates childhood innocence. The blue-eyed three-year-old didn’t know his mum Carla Fornari and her partner Cosimo Orlando were mixed up in the Mafia.
    But that made no difference last month when hitmen forced the family car off the road and opened fire with machine guns.

    Domenico died instantly, his limp, bloodied body riddled with bullet wounds. His mum and her boyfriend, a mob figure convicted of two murders, also died.
    The murder was a shock even in a region of Italy where tit-for-tat revenge killings between mobsters have reached epidemic levels. It was a grim reminder of how far the reality of the modern Mafia differs from the “code of honour” myth popularised in The Godfather and other movies. If there was ever a time when women, children and bystanders were safe, it was long ago.

    In Naples, the hit-men are children

    LESS than a hundred yards away, Via San Biagio dei Librai in the centre of Naples bustles with activity. Tourists buy souvenirs and munch pizza, oblivious to the meaning of the coded graffiti on the street’s peeling walls. But in a side alley, all is solemn hush. Beyond a door, in a courtyard, stands a tall metal cabinet displaying a ceramic bust of a young man, surrounded by fresh white roses. If not for his hipster beard and haircut, it could be the shrine of a long-dead saint.
    The building that surrounds the courtyard is the redoubt of one of the many warring clans of Italy’s oldest yet least-cohesive mafia, the Camorra. The young man to whom the shrine is dedicated is Emanuele Sibillo, the archetype of a new breed of Neapolitan gangster. He was murdered in 2015 at the age of 19 in a nearby street that forms part of the territory of a rival crew.

    Usually I prefer a nice DRY sidewalk so I have some traction in case a 10 yr old Mafia hitman rolls up on his big wheel, and I gotta make a run for it
