What is the Mafia organization?

Mafia is a term now popular worldwide, with which we are referring to a particular type of criminal organizations. The modern analysis of the phenomenon of Mafia consider it, even before a criminal organization, an "organization of power": it shows that the main guarantee of its existence is not much in the proceeds of illegal activities, as alliances and partnerships with officials of the state, particularly politicians and the media of certain segments of the population.
The term Mafia was first used to describe a native of Sicily criminal organization, more precisely defined as Cosa Nostra.
The word Mafia has several possible etymological origins, more or less realistic and verifiable:
But Hias derived from the Arabic word, "bravado", which is related to the bravado displayed by the members of this organization.
Derived from the expression of Arabic spoken, and not that of literature, but has significant financial "no" or "no".
Derivation of the word from Arabic mu'afak, "protection of the weak", or maha, "quarry".
Derivation of the Tuscan dialect word meaning maffia "misery" or "showy ostentation, arrogance."
Derived from the Sicilian Vespers and adopted as the theme song for Death to the French (Angevin) Independence Anela, Italy or Next (the historical currents Saints believes that the term is, however, before the Angevin rule).
Another reconstruction, leg connected to Sicily on the eve of Mazzini Unit, is one made in 1897 by historian William Heckethorn Ch. Although not considered acceptable, considering the term as an acronym for Mazzini Authorizes Mafia Fire Theft poisoning. This appeal was addressed to the secret organizations that were born on the island.
Traditionally it is said that a French soldier raped a young woman called Droetto. The terrified mother for what happened to his daughter ran the streets, shouting "But - ffia, Tue - ffia! 'Or' my daughter, my daughter." The cry of the mother was repeated by others, and the word spread from Palermo in Sicily. The term became so mafia slogan of the resistance movement, then was the genesis of the struggle by the Sicilians. [Citation needed]
In the event that the term derived from the Tuscan, would come into popular in Sicily shortly after the unification of Italy in 1862, taking the dell'affievolimento phonetic phenomenon, as revenue using the Sicilian Tuscan other words, that " machine "machine becomes," disease "diseases, and" morning "morning, and was used to determine both the secret organization of the working classes, that precisely in the" mafia "at that time were defending against the excessive power of the dominant classes, both the bravado and the showy display, typical of the "mafia" at that time.
And even today, in Sicily, the adjective "mafiusu" is also used to indicate something incredibly flashy or expensive: a dress elegant or prestigious car is "a vistitu mafiusu, 'na mafiusa machine" because once the people saw in the mafia at that time his lawyer because it puts the idea of ​​social justice with that dell'avvenenza and athleticism.
According to historian Giuseppe Pitrè, popular traditions, the term was used in the parlance of a popular neighborhood of Palermo and was synonymous with beauty and boldness.
The phrase becomes a common word Mafia since 1863, with the drama The Vicar of Joseph de la mafiusi Rizzotto and Gaetano Mosca, which had great success and was translated into Italian, Neapolitan and Milanese, spreading the word throughout the national territory .
In this drama, mafiuso is the Camorra, the choleric, the '"man of honor", ie the individual who joins an association which is opposed to the institutions and who displays courage and superiority. In "Mafia, or association malandrinesca" mentions a confidential document signed by the then prefect of Palermo, Filippo Antonio Gualterio in April 1865.
In the sixties of the nineteenth century begins, however, the luck of the word, even in official documents, such as state officials in communications, indicates, as well as a criminal, an act widely spread in Sicilian society.

Leonardo Sciascia, 1972, by written notice at the release of "Day of the Owl" in the series "Readings for the middle school" Einaudi "But the Mafia was, and is something else: a system that moves and has interests in Sicily economic and power of a class that can be said about middle-class, and does not arise and develop in a vacuum state (ie when the state, with its laws and its functions, is weak or missing), but within a state. The Mafia is in fact nothing more than a parasitic bourgeoisie, a bourgeoisie that entrepreneurs but only uses "
