WEBINAR RECORDING | “Mafia: The History of an Italian Myth”
Presented by Dr. Nicholas Albanese
With Additional Commentary by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
Mafia-type organizations in Italy continue to not only survive but thrive in the present day despite the attempts by the Italian State to combat the phenomenon. One of the major obstacles to fighting the mafia is the persistence of social acceptance and support for these organizations in communities across Sicily and Southern Italy. In this presentation, I will discuss how and why this is still happening and how cultural perceptions of the mafia have allowed the myths of mafiosi to endure in Italy and around the globe.
The webinar recording consists of a 45-minute lecture.
