It goes by so fast in a somewhat Encyclopedic demeanor, which isn’t really a bad thing. Una storia di mafia e anche una storia di politica che dimostra come spesso lo Stato sia andato a braccetto con chi non doveva.
I’ve read and enjoyed two of Camilleri’s Inspector Montalbano mysteries, but this book was banea astoundingly andrda. Either a true crime story, or historical fiction based on a true camikleri — I honestly don’t know which — it’s pretty much devoid of any of the humor or style of the Montalbano novels, and by the end I was totally confused about whether author Camilleri concluded that the Sacco brothers did or didn’t commit the crimes for which they were convicted, or whether his final answer was saccco I’ve read and enjoyed two of Camilleri’s Inspector Montalbano mysteries, but this book was just astoundingly bad.

Fascinating story with richly developed characters good camillleri bad ; a twisted plot with lots of banad and social details, and strongly viewed issues; written in a graceful, informative adnrea disturbing tone, grim, gritty, sobering; an unhurried pace that includes andrex details; framed by details of life under the Mafia that resonate today, when not much has changed politically.
A compelling look at a disturbing situation. This is the allegedly true account of an honest and hard working family in Sicily in the early 20th century whose lives and livelihood were destroyed by the mafia in connivance with the corrupt and ineffectual state. The family, through their persistent hard work, had managed to build successful businesses, and refused to pay the mafia extortion money. In retaliation the mafia threatened them repeatedly, burned their farm buildings, attempted to steal their livestock, damaged their orchards, and This is the allegedly true account of an honest and hard working family in Sicily in the early 20th century whose lives and livelihood were destroyed by the mafia in connivance with the corrupt and ineffectual state.
In retaliation the mafia threatened them repeatedly, burned their farm saacco, attempted to steal their livestock, damaged their orchards, and killed or attempted to kill more than one family member.
Still, the Sacco family refused to give in. Eventually the mafia changed tactics and began to use the state apparatus to their benefit, by threatening or bribing people to charge the Anxrea with serious crimes.
Although the police and carabinieri knew full well what was happening they claimed that their hands were tied and andrsa they had to pursue the charges. Corrupt or intimidated judges went along with the charade. In the end the core of the Sacco family were on the run for years from both the mafia and from the state.
This is a brisk history of the Sacco family, based on their family papers. Luigi Sacco had started life as a field peasant, but through hard work and a knowledge of pistachio trees, had built up a prosperous business and by the mids, he also anxrea a large, equally hard-working, family.
In Raffadali, where they lived in Sicily, the family was known to be kind, fair and law-abiding, running their business by mild socialist principles. Unfortunately, the prosperity camilleri the socialism would bring This is a brisk history of the Sacco family, based on their family papers.
Unfortunately, the prosperity and the socialism would bring them into conflict with both the Mafia and the Fascists. This story is told with Andrea Camilleri’s customary mordant wit, eye for the absurd and humanity. It demonstrates how the Mafia works – both in the absence banad political will and, also, with its connivance. It’s unadorned with speculation and is almost brutal in presenting the evidence.
Europa – The Sacco Gang
It is, also, still, regrettably relevant. This was not part of the Camilleri series, but rather an expose of brothers and their families who are hounded and abused by the Mafia because they will not pay extortion money and, although the village knows they are innocent, the Mafia continue to hound them and blame them for various crimes with the tacit approval of the police who will not stand up to the Mafia themselves.
It is a sad tale which continues for years and years as the family is worn down and almost obliterated. I just found it This was not part of the Camilleri series, but rather an expose of brothers and their families who are hounded and abused by the Mafia because they will not pay extortion money and, although the village knows they are innocent, the Mafia continue to hound them and blame them for various crimes with the tacit approval of the police who will not stand up to the Mafia themselves.
I just found it depressing and frustrating how good was continuously squashed by evil people — there was little of the redemption and even humous that can be found in Camilleri’s delightful mysteries. Interesting story of how the Mafia criminalizes its opponents. It’s told very matter of factly, as opposed to vividly rendered in a narrative.
By the end I couldn’t tell if this was fiction or journalism. I’m also suspicious of the claim that camillegi Mafiosi were crime families were framed Nor do I really want to accept the proposition that a notorious crime family was wholly innocent. What do we really know about the Sacco gang? Nicely read by Grover Gardner. A pretty quick read very short book with lots of terrible things happening due to corruption, bad politics, regionoalism and people caught in the cross fire of all the above.
Siempre un deleite leer a Camilleri. Entertaining as camioleri, the story of the Sacco family battling the Mafia is well-told and illustrates well how justice can baanda undermined by criminality, venality, and apathy towards public interest by the state.
Great details about early 20th century Sicily and the complex interplay between local worlds, the Mafia, and fascism. But the story is ultimately so tragic, and so clearly saccl with an eye to a myth of social anti- banditry in Sicily, that it doesn’t quite hold up on its own. The story of the Sacco family in Sicily, as told by one of them – Alfonso.
Not a work of fiction.
I will think of their story -along with the fictional Lord of the Flies- whenever people collectively act against the Common Good. I think the fact that it’s not fiction makes it more dreadful.
Coming from Camilleri I expected more.
The main value in the book was to describe the grip of the mafia on Sicily in the s. Small book pages. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Sicilian family defies the Mafia.

In this short read we follow the history of the Sacco family from humble beginnings to outlaws with death, revenge and criminal trials along the way. I loved the very short andea, quick and easy writing style and the setting.
