On 19th July of 28 years ago the great magistrate Paolo Borsellino died

Paolo Borsellino

In Italy Paolo Borsellino is considered by many (almost everyone) a hero, although I have the perception that over the years, the generations that have not lived through the 90s do not give much importance to personalities of this type.
The magistrate Paolo Borsellino was killed in via D’Amelio in Palermo (Sicily) because he was one of the main wrestlers to the Mafia. Borsellino died a few months after the killing of another great magistrate Falcone. To date, magistrates of this caliber exist in Italy but can be counted on the fingers of one hand, and those few who have the courage to fight are kept under guard 24 hours a day.
Despite having the foggy memories of those years, because I was only a child, I can clearly say in retrospect that probably magistrates today do not have a media visibility as in the 90s, probably because in the past decades it hit the state with real massacres and those who fought Cosa Nostra (Mafia) could not escape interviews and TV …
Today the Mafia no longer hits as it once did but acts in the dark and news of the killings of people by the killers is also rare ..
The massacre season is over and many think that this happened due to a famous negotiation between the state and the mafia in the mid-90s …
