Palermo names square after Falcone and Borsellino: a first in the city

The article explains that a square in Palermo has been dedicated to Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, two magistrates who were killed in mafia attacks in 1992. The square, located in front of the Notarbartolo train station, was previously named after the Renaissance writer Matteo Maria Boiardo. The decision was made by the mayor of Palermo, Roberto Lagalla, following approval from the toponymic commission and the superintendent. This is the first time that streets or squares in the city have been dedicated to the two murdered magistrates. Additionally, a villa is dedicated to Falcone and his wife Francesca Morvillo, while a velodrome and an atrium in the municipal library are dedicated to Borsellino. The area near via Nortarbartolo had been named after Boiardo in 1969.
