... 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.

Pepe said "You're lucky, I bring you to the best restaurant in Palermo!" It was 10:30 by the time food was served! I fought myself from falling asleep! It was midnight by the team we finished.

During that time, the mafia was composed by members of the people of Corleone who exploited the lands belonging to the workers. Therefore, the land workers movement guided by Verro consequently became an anti-mafia movement, because it was rebelling against this exploitation.
