The mafia is too rooted, diffuse and covert to be defeated.
Too rooted. Conceptualised and conceived in “ ”, the mafia began as a way for “ ”. since, it has gathered in number of affiliates, and power. Unfortunately many people still see in the mafia the powerful authority that apparently makes it able to keep civil order.

Now the organisations are too large and united, in the sense that the criminal organisations of more places have now made alliances and now it is something to widely spread for anyone to blame on the political climate if it’s not defeated.
Too concealed. The rules of omerta’ and silenzio, the threat of punishment by death, suspicious death or disappearance. Secondly because many mafiosi are protected by people of considerable importance.
