The original Mafia was formed by Muslims of Sicily. Sicily was an Islamic emirate from 830 to 1072. In fact, Mafia is an Arabic work, an off shoot of aafia / aafiat  = security / protection.

Subject: Mafia collusion ruling deepens Italy's political divides

I have become more curious about Italy, since I read article which revealed has bigger middle class than US, UK, and Canada! It has many notable weaknesses;but somethings boosting it-It's its SMEs!

The deadlock in Italian politics for the past two-and-a-half months shows little sign of loosening after a court ruled that former government officials colluded with Sicily's Mafia in the early 1990s.
A third round of talks for a new government between the Five Star Movement (M5S) and Matteo Salvini's nationalist League, which leads a right-wing coalition that includes Silvio Berlusconi's Forza Italia party, went nowhere on Friday as M5S leader Luigi Di Maio continues to demand Salvini dump his scandal-dogged partner.
Berlusconi was not involved in the Mafia trial in Palermo, however his close ally Marcello Dell'Utri, fellow Forza Italia founder, was sentenced to 12 years in prison along with other ex-officials and mafia bosses.
