He who is silent and bows his head dies every time he bends over. He who speaks aloud and walks with his head held up high dies only once.” Giovanni Falcone was a brave Italian prosecuting magistrate who was killed by the Corleone Mafia on May 23rd, 1992, with a half-ton of explosives hidden under the road to Palermo, near the town of Capaci. His wife Francesca Morvillo and police officers Rocco Dicillo, Antonio Montinaro and Vito Schifani were also killed in the blast. He used to say “My life is mapped out: it is my destiny to take a bullet by the Mafia some day. The only thing I don't know is when” but he continued to fight organized crime until his last day believing that “Mafia is a human phenomenon and thus, like all human phenomena, it has had a beginning and an evolution, and will also have an end”. A true hero. May he rest in peace.
