De facto management and control of the territory in which a moment of particular tension dating back to 2018.
Year in which the problems emerge between two families of farmers who until then would have benefited from the division.
On the one hand i Right and on the other i Sanfilippo Scena.
Pastors known to the news also because, in February 2018, Giuseppe and Carmelo Destro are victims of an ambush in which the first of the two will lose his life.

In the past, the elderly boss of Enna would have established the grazing areas of the two families Savior Seminara.
Under the dam wall»In favor of the Destro and«above the dam wall»For the benefit of the Sanfilippo Scena.
A concession that would have been paid to Cosa Nostra with the sum of twenty thousand euros per year.
The agreement, however, falters in 2018 when the Sanfilippo Scena pretend to redefine the conditions.
Six months each and then the definitive expulsion of the Destro.
All thanks to a new agreement which, according to the reconstruction of the magistrates, would not have been reached with the Cosa Nostra family but with two members of the Mazzei clan: Carmelo Pantalena and Eugenio Spitalarthe.
On November 18, 2018, the issue would have been addressed in a summit, carried out at an Eni service station along the 417 state road, in the presence of Blessed Of Stefano, «Seminara’s successor as regent of Cosa Nostra Calatina», we read in the papers of the investigation.
Meeting that ended with the recognition of the claims of the Sanfilippo Scena.

However, the setback of the interference of the Carcagnusi – active in Bronte – in the division of grazing in state-owned land.
«He can command in Catania, not here.
Why do they come to lay down the law in our house? », They said while some affiliates of the La Rocca family were intercepted.
One of them, identified in Matteo Vast, he would also have been the victim of a beating.
Punished, according to the reconstruction, for the excessive initiative in bringing the agreement back to the original version dictated by the boss Seminara.
Now no one enters the dam anymore – said the pastor – you come in if you have the balls ».
The controversy would eventually be resolved in favor of the Sanfilippo Scena.
Pippo is gone – said Vasta referring to one of the Destro brothers who was killed in the ambush – if there had been Pippo all these things they wouldn’t happen“.

To complete the dam an archaeological site from the Imperial Roman era would be destroyed.
Work on the reservoir began in 1990 and its capacity is estimated at over 45 million cubic meters of water, a holy hand for the thirsty lands of that area.
To date, 74 million euros have been spent on its construction.
Recently the regional government led by Nello Musumeci announced the green light for the final project.
The completion will be carried out, according to the program, using the resources of the PNRR.
