The criminal organization Cosa Nostra exists in our society through the signals it leaves in the media, in political discourse and in anti-mafia activism. Which of these signals do we choose to narrate by thinking of them and recoding them as a legacy to be passed on? How do mafia museums become carriers of this project? And how is this dictated by from whom they choose to inherit, and of which memory, and why? And how do they position themselves in the urban and social space, differentiating themselves from the city and other memory actors? This article explores these questions from a semiotic perspective, focusing on the heritage of the memory of the fight against the mafia in the city of Palermo, starting with the recent opening of the No Mafia Memorial Museum.

Abstract

The criminal organization Cosa Nostra exists in our society through the signals it leaves in the media, in political discourse and in anti-mafia activism. Which of these signals do we choose to narrate by thinking of them and recoding them as a legacy to be passed on? How do mafia museums become carriers of this project? And how is this dictated by from whom they choose to inherit, and of which memory, and why? And how do they position themselves in the urban and social space, differentiating themselves from the city and other memory actors? This article explores these questions from a semiotic perspective, focusing on the heritage of the memory of the fight against the mafia in the city of Palermo, starting with the recent opening of the No Mafia Memorial Museum.
