  • The Joe Petrosino is not just a Museum, but a real mafia culture center. Downstairs are represented the environments where it lived in the early years and where he returned a few days before his assassination in Palermo. Upstairs, a wonderful multimedia installations, with reconstructions of excellent workmanship and movies archives rai, do reflect on the history of Italian emigration to the USA and on the mafia. And if you are lucky, you will find the great-grandson of Pandit, tutelary of the House Museum. From going there with their children.

  • Aside from everything about the most illustrious son of P-j. Petrosino-this Museum, thanks to a good catch, has become a place of memories of Heroes Mafia victims. So, the attractive force is leavened, although you should advertise more content and mission of the House of the Hero padulese.

  • The Museum, located in the birthplace of Joe Petrosino, is the only museum dedicated to a representative of the order. Pandit was born in this House on 30 August 1860 and lived there until the year 1873 along with father Prospero, tailor, and the whole family, he left for America. So it was that Joseph became Joe in America, changed its fate becoming then the great and legendary and most famous policeman of America. in the House Museum continued living relatives of Joseph: brother, grandchildren, great-granddaughter. All were faithful custodians of these environments that have preserved the memory of those years. The furnishings, objects, have survived almost intact and here lives the story of the great southern and perennial emigration which was conspicuous during the late XIX and early XX century. The introduction of the electric light and the new liberty dining furniture, bought from Michael, Joe's brother who returns to the origins with a nest egg of money saved in the States, they become very significant chapters of the history of emigration. Through the display of new prosperity the emigrant who returns showed the villagers back home, the pride to never be party to no avail. The electric light, the new furniture but also a watch and a gold chain, and the same style of dress becomes a statement of success. In the Museum there are also exhibition memorabilia and documents relating to the heroic activities of the COP. The exhibition traces, through its 24 sections, the period shall begin from the year 1860 and that reaches up to the present day offering views on legality, justice and sound emigration, is widely and completely narrated by caretakers/guides in a uniform identical to that of the NYPD.

  • Like any Museum tells the story of a historical period with objects and locations of long, heartfelt advice anyone visiting this museum should definitely visit the certosa di San Lorenzo. I highly recommend for those wishing to reach the House Museum to park their car in piazza Umberto I, which is near, except Friday morning as market dstinato, while for buses it is advisable to visit the public car parks of the Charterhouse of San Lorenzo since the country has narrow winding streets. 0975 081009 House Museum
