Summary Shadows fall across the narrow streets of Palermo, cloaking the dark hand of the Cosa Nostra, the Sicilian Mafia. The Mafia still extort protection money, known as pizzo, from 80% of Sicilian businesses. Failure to pay pizzo means arson or physical attack. We throw open the shutters on this hidden world, where to confront the Mafia can spell death. An explosive mix of police footage, frank testimony and chilling reconstruction
