Italy: Bombed car that slew Sicilian Mafia victim Falcone displayed in Rome

The remains of the car which belonged to the bodyguards of prosecutor Giovanni Falcone who was killed by the Sicilian Mafia in 1992 were displayed on Wednesday in gallery Alberto Sorde in Rome. «Young people have to see what the mafia has done, and understand that mafia doesn't belong just to me and Sicilians, but to all Italians. I'm happy that today in Rome we understand that mafia is not just... Еще in Palermo,» Falcone's bodyguard Antonio Montinaro widow Tina Montinaro said during a speech. Italian Minister of Justice Andrea Orlando and president of Lazio region Lazio Nicola Zingaretti were present in the ceremony. Falcone was an Italian judge and prosecutor, who spent most of his professional life trying to defeat the Sicilian Mafia.
