In France the word “mafia” connotes a type of culture delivered by Hollywood movies and the French cannot but sneer at such term, thinking of Robert De Niro or Marlon Brando. Big mistake.
In Italy the sneer freezes and becomes a cold look. Organised crime in Italy has long become a crucial and illicit economic player that slows down and pollutes the country's development.
