... t go to waste. Some of the foods we ate were arancina(risotto balls), fried fish, vegetables and Panelle, which we made in our cooking class. We also had some beef.

When Mussolini understood that the mafia is strong and active in Sicily, he sent the magistrate Mori to contrast it: Mori was able to arrest many laborers of the mafia, but not the actual bosses. Among the people that Mori arrested there was Carmelo Rizzotto, the father of Placido Rizzotto. Placido is then forced to leave school and begin ...
