  • In the historic centre of padula (better to park near the square's walk). Managed by the great-grandson of Pandit, histrionic character who accompanies you during your visit. Interesting because you will see a House from the early 20th century the province Bell, and then for the memorabilia preserved. Want to be a symbol for tutorials of legality.

  • I discovered this place thanks to a guide that explains, in a reductive way for obvious reasons of space, 100 marvels of Cilento. The museum dedicated to Joe Petrosino, made in the House where he was born, is certainly one of them. Recommend to visit this House Museum who should be passing through P, is an off the beaten path but well worth it. In my possession are also shown the phone numbers to contact the staff dedicated to welcome tourists and also the great-grandson of Pandit, who he promptly called offering to guide us personally to discover the birthplace and the history of his famous relative. The Museum is divided into 24 sections, recounts a period from 1860 (year of birth of Joe Petrosino) to the present day, to show how nothing has changed since then. It is a journey through history, with cleaved on the phenomenon of migration and the Mafia, and is a "mission" to raise awareness on the issue of legality. Tickets cost 4.00 euros, and if you are lucky you can have an exceptional Guide, Mr. Nino Melito Pandit, whose grandfather on his mother's side was the last brother of the most famous policeman of America. The tale, which accompanies a visit to the Museum, is based on the oral tradition of family who unfortunately is increasingly disappearing but that cannot fail to shine with emotion and pride in the eyes of someone who tells. Also interesting is the visit to the halls of the Museum opened a few years ago, with its virtual Gallery-mafia and Mafia. At the end of the visit you may also be tempted to buy a booklet of the cost of 5.00 euros to support the work done by the guides, which are not paid but that ensure the opening of the Museum all year long. My invitation is to buy it, either to follow the exploits of this hero famous for his insights and his companies (discover that really great-nephew has not spared to tell), both to preserve forever the memory of honest men who with their courage and their exploits make us proud to be Italian. Visit highly recommended.

  • Perched between the houses of the village of Padula is the House Museum dedicated to the famous Italian-American detective Joe Petrosino, a character engrossed to Chronicle of beginning 900 for being the precursor of modern-day anti-mafia police. The House has two floors, with a multimedia Museum on the character and history of the black hand (the Italian-American mafia beginning 900) and a setting of great interest on the domestic life of the Petrosino family. Visit very interesting.
