Abstract

In this paper the author research a mafia stereotype, regarding Palermo and Moscow. Organized crime is a huge presence in the global economy. Mafia is intrinsically controversial because its protagonists necessarily do their business in secrecy and silence. The true antimafia account should be about international collaboration, partnership, mutual friendship, and common values. A sincere antimafia endeavor should point to the importance of alliances in an increasingly complicated and interconnected world. In Italy and in Russia, the glamorized Hollywood mafia is the past narrative, which can be completely understood in a general perspective about simplistic fictional accounts.
