    • Synopsis
    • What do we mean when we talk about “The State-Mafia Pact”?
      About the concessions given on behalf of the State to the Mafia
      in exchange for an end to bloodshed? Who exactly is culpable
      for the assassination of Falcone and Borsellino? What do we
      know about the endless coexistence of Mafia and Politics? Between
      the Mafia and the Catholic Church? Between the Mafia
      and the Police? Or is there more?
      A group of actors bring to life the most relevant episodes of the
      sequence of events known as “The State-Mafia Pact” (Trattativa
      Stato – Mafia) that is supposed to reveal the truth about alleged
      negotiations between the Italian government and the Mafia. The
      actors impersonate Mafia, secret service agents, other officials,
      magistrates, victims, assassins, Freemasons, people who are
      honest and brave and people who are brave up to a point... And
      so one of the most intricate events of our time is brought to life
      in this passionate film.
