Cinisi mayor expresses displeasure over ex-mobster fireworks

Di Maggio celebrated 100th b'day despite pyrotechnics ban

Cinisi mayor expresses displeasure over ex-mobster fireworks

(ANSA) -Palermo, January 12 - The Sicilian town of Cinisi, known as the birthplace of slain anti-mafia activist Giuseppe (Peppino) Impastato, has distanced itself from a former mobster after he celebrated his 100th birthday there with fireworks on January 6, La Repubblica newspaper reported Tuesday. Cinisi Mayor Giangiacomo Palazzolo expressed his displeasure at the incident involving Procopio Di Maggio, who has one son serving life imprisonment while another was murdered in 2000 and his body dumped in the sea. "Today Di Maggio is harmless but this is a story that gets up my nose," he told the daily. Separately Palazzolo told a RAI radio news bulletin that the ex-mobster was in violation of an ordinance banning firework displays. "He has been fined and reported for failing to observe an administrative order. The town is not mafioso, he celebrated with relatives in a restaurant, 35-40 people on his own account," the mayor said. Cinisi and the story of Peppino Impastato rose to international fame in 2000 with the award-winning film I Cento Passi (One Hundred Steps) by Marco Tullio Giordana starring Luigi Lo Cascio in the role of the journalist and political activist who was assassinated in 1978. One hundred steps was the number of steps it took to get from the Impastato family home to the house of local Mafia boss Gaetano Badalamenti. Badalamenti was subsequently convicted for ordering the assassination.
