Who we are

Addiopizzo (goodbye extortion money) is a grassroot antimafia movement of businesses and consumers who refuse to pay extortion money “pizzo” to the Mafia, and is based in Palermo.

Addiopizzo is an open, fluid and dynamic movement, that acts from below and presents itself as a spokesman of a “cultural revolution” against the Mafia. It is constituted by all women and men, girls and boys, business owners and customers who recognize themselves in this sentence: “A whole population that pays the pizzo is a population without dignity”.

Addiopizzo is also an association of volunteers that is openly non-partisan and purposely “mono-thematic”, for which its specific field of action, in the context of a broader antimafia movement, is the promotion of a virtuous and mafia-free economy through the means of the “critical consumption Addiopizzo”.
