hi Cynthia . The word Mafia is actually an acronym.

The name was acronym “for Mazzini Autorizza Furti, Incendi e Attentati”. Translated into English: "Mazzini Authorizes Theft, Arson and Kidnapping."

The acronym was invented by a mason called Mazzini.

With the end of world war 2 the US set free the biggest criminals held in prisons, to put them in charge of the different regions.

Every small and large region was divided in this so called zones and to prevent people from traveling from the villages to the cities, the use of visas and special permits called lasciapassare was enforced.

The use of separate zones within regions and the use of visas needed to travel through this so called zones became the way used to control both the movement of people, and the rights to commerce.

If you research the family names of those put in charge for the issue of this so called visas or lasciapassare, you will find out that they are the same names of the biggest so called mafia families.

Corleone is a very good example

This was the case for Italy, I have not investigated the names of those who was put in charge of issuing such permissions to travel through this so called zones in other European countries but I am quite sure that you will find out that the same was happening also there.
