As they collected money from doing so, they supplied protection from alien overlords. With a sudden event of immigration from southern Italy in the 1890s, the same system used in Italy at the time was exported and used in the United States. In 1890, accounts of very intelligent and coordinated Italian criminals arose, inconsistently receiving the personas of the Mafia, the Black Hand, the Neapolitan Camorra, or La Cosa Nostra, otherwise defined as ¨Our Thing.” These associations more often than not demonstrated how great they are at what they do by staying clear of public attention.
The Mafia is a massive organized crime organization hailing from Sicily, Italy. They weren 't big in America until the 1920’s, when they got their start from smuggling alcohol during the prohibition era. The influence of the mafia can be seen across books, television, and movies. The mafia is still an important subject today because of how much power they had in America. There have been many popular movies made such as The Godfather that show what the mafia is like.
Human trafficking produces billions of dollars in profit every year, it is right behind drug trafficking as the most lucrative form of crime throughout the world. (DHS website). Victims of human trafficking rarely come forward due to the threats of murder, threats of killing their loved ones/friends, as well as having nowhere else to go because they have been ostracized from their own family and their “pimp” is their family. Another issue of why victims do not come forward is that they are afraid of law enforcement so they may go to jail, etc. (DHS website)
The people of Italy have been a victim of this type of falsification, especially on the island of Sicily. This can be some justification for why the myth of the mafia is present. The word mafia originates from Italian, as does the type of organization, which has paved the way for the mobs in Russia, Poland, etc. From the early states of Italy’s birth, the south lacked the governmental resources needed to foster growth. Thus, the mafia seized the moment and took things into their own hands.

Italy is countries which over the years have been ruled by powerful kings, elected official and a senate full of wealthy aristocrats. In 1922, Benito Mussolini was appointed prime minister of Italy by King Victor Emmanuel II. Since, Mussolini became prime minister he spent about twenty years uniting power and building Italian by taking over as many other European country as he could.

Unfortunately, not too long after he joined forces with Germany, Mussolini lost his own country to the Germans.
There are many different forms of slavery still happening today, like workers on farms being enslaved, children and even young adults being forced into unconsenting marriage, and human and sex trafficking being a huge problem in the United States and even the world. Slavery is a such large part of America, even today. It’s the past, and the past cannot be completely forgotten. As an example of the claws that slavery still has on America today, here’s a tidbit of information. “The International Labour Organization estimates that there are 20.9 million victims of human trafficking globally. 68% of them are trapped in forced labor. 26% of them are children. 55% are women and girls.”(Polaris) 20.9 million victims, all over the world, mostly female, and portion of them children. All these people, these humans, innocent people just like everybody else, are steadily being forced into slavery, some right now. Is anybody aware that 3,827 people per day are being sold or kidnapped into slavery?
In an effort to decrease the paucity of information and awareness of survivor’s experiences, the authors’ project analyzed the narratives of six survivors of child sex trafficking to assess factors that influenced their ability to survive, leave the sex trade, and reintegrate back into the community. The participants began to desire more meaningful, safe interpersonal relationships outside of the sex trade, and once participants left the industry, they stabilized and began the process of processing their traumatic experiences through new social and emotional supports. There is still much knowledge and awareness to be gained from working with survivors of sex trafficking, and child sex trafficking specifically, there is significant hope that simply the act of gathering information about their experiences will help survivors being the journey of processing their trauma.
The people of Italy and Mussolini himself wanted to boost Italy’s national prestige. Their prestige had been damaged during the first Italian-Ethiopian War when Italy became the first European country to lose to an African nation. Italy’s modernized military allowed for a swift victory. The win over Ethiopia allowed Mussolini to rebuild Italy with the natural resources that the country had available (Document 6). Benito Mussolini gained the support of many Italians from his encouraging and motivating
The Mafia Imagine a world filled with big men with strong accents, walking around in suits with big cigars in their mouths. These men were loyal to their families but were dangerous if ever crossed. Does one thing wrong and you might as well dig your grave. These men thrived on the terrible economic trouble America was going through. These men are a big part of history and still have an effect on us today.

The Roman Empire is referenced as, as the 1954 guide, a time of engineering, but also as a time that contributed highly to “modern political administration and law”. The “Glory of the Renaissance” is characterized as a time with arts “still unsurpassed” and exploration that led to the discovery of the New World (PGI 1964 25). This guidebook is the first and only guidebook to go into detail about the time between the Renaissance period and WWI: the Italian Risorgimento. The Risorgimento was a movement who’s primary aim was to liberate and unite Italy after the Italian kingdom fell and was taken over by several different countries.
