The legacy of Messina Denaro and the fragile balance of Cosa Nostra

The absence of Matteo Messina Denaro, arrested in Palermo on January 16, 2023 and died on September 25 in a maximum security prison in L’Aquila, will have repercussions in the Sicilian mafia landscape, particularly in the province of Trapani. This is reported in the semi-annual report of the Dia on mafia organizations, for the first half of 2023, quoting the statements of the prosecutor of Palermo, Maurizio De Lucia, during a hearing in the Anti-Mafia Commission on July 13, 2023. The boss of Castelvetrano was the head of the province of Trapani, both materially and formally, and had a charismatic role in the province of Palermo and in the entire cosa nostra organization. His role grew in importance as other leaders were captured, and he was involved in important decisions of the mafia organization.
