"Human wickedness has no limits, these places and the brutal actions of the mafia executioners bear witness to it"commented Rossi who for the first time visited the well and the rooms where he was detained for 779 days giuseppe Di Matteo,"a brutality that we are reliving today in different forms in the terrorist attacks which are increasingly unpredictable and which strike indiscriminately".

Finally the undersecretary Rossi wanted to underline also how much "the whole of Sicily, above all, in this last period, is showing an extraordinary welcome towards immigrants.
