When I was in Padula in June 2019, I visited the Museo. The signora who gave the tour was precise, engaging, and understatedly intense in relaying the history of the late Joe Petrosino, Padula-born New York City police officer murdered by the "Black Hand" crime organization in Sicily in the early 1900s. The museo, in the former Petrosino family home, is a fascinating and authentic tribute to the man, a local hero with an international reputation, and the tour is also upsetting in its graphic photographs of crime scenes of murders undertaken by organized crime over the decades in Italy. A sobering and valuable exploration of a recurring dark theme in Italian and Italian-American history. A memorable destination in Padula.
