Fabio Conticello

Owner of the famous Palermitano restaurant Antica Foccaceria San Francesco, Fabio decided along with his brother Vincenzo to report all extortionate demands to the police. This was a courageous act which made them a symbol of the rebellion against the mafia, a choice which has since been imitated by other proprietors.
