Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] Having dismissed the essay Literature and the Mafia, then collected in Crossword, Sciascia never return to write in a systematic way the mafia in the Sicilian literature. Nevertheless, most of his non-fiction production is full of ideas and insights on the topic, maybe not all yet adequately developed, and how would agree to do. However, it is worth interpreting the only remake of a text of the Sicilian tradition with which he has experimented in our not only as a creative rewriting, which is in effect, but also as an interpretive text sideways. These are Mafiosi, comedy in two "parts" whose schedule I mafiusi of the vicarious Joseph Rizzotto and Gaspare Moscow, the dialect comedy composed between 1854 and 1863.
