PAOLO BORSELLINO

They will kill me, but it will not be a mafia’s revenge. Mafia does not use murder to get revenge. Maybe mafia will physically kill me, but he/she who will actually order my murder will be ‘others’.” Paolo Borsellino was one of the most important magistrates who fought the Sicilian Mafia. On July 19, 1992, he was killed by a car bomb in Palermo, his hometown, in front of his mother’s house, 57 days after his dear friend and fellow antimafia magistrate Giovanni Falcone was assassinated. The bomb also claimed the lives of five police officers: Emanuela Loi, Agostino Catalano, Walter Cosina, Vincenzo Li Muli, and Claudio Traina. “The fight against mafia, which is the first problem to solve in our unfortunate and beautiful land, must be not only a cold repressive action, but a moral and cultural movement, involving everyone, especially younger generations, the most fit to feel the beauty of the fresh taste of freedom that sweeps away the foulness of moral compromise, of indifference, of contiguity and, hence, of complicity.” —Paolo Borsellino, from his speech during Falcone's funerals.
