Understatement and solemn it is well placed to remember those that made Palermo the safe city it is today

We had no time or way of stopping at the memorial to Falcone, but be sure to look out for it as you travel between Palermo and the airport. Also, to as you head in to the city you'll see the iconic "No Mafia" inscription up on the hillside to the right. By this time you will have probably have noticed that the airport has recently been named in honour of Falcone and th other notable victim of the mafia, Borsellino. Both men were magistrates who paid with their lives in the early 1990's for daring to investigate the mafia. If you want to learn more about thee times, and a lot more still about Sicilian culture and history then an essential book to read before you go and while you are there is "Midnight In Sicily" by Peter Robb. Although classed as a travel book it is much more than that, with extended discussions about Guttuso, "The Leopard", Sicilian cuisine, and much much more. It's beautifully written - the book is a perfect enhancement of your trip to Sicily, and then try "The Leopard" as a companion piece and you'll be fully prepared for the Palermitan experience.

Judge Giovanni Falcone died when his Lancia Thema was bombed on the autostrada and this monument was erected near the spot. Try (only try, Italian traffic!), to slow down to see it.

This monument about the darker days of Palermo was worth the quick visit. Right on SS 19 in Palermo.
