The Sicilian Mafia, also known as simply the Mafia and frequently
referred to by members as Cosa Nostra (Italian pronunciation: [ˈkɔza
ˈnɔstra], this thing of ours), is a criminal syndicate in Sicily, Italy.
It is a loose association of criminal groups that share a common
organisational structure and code of conduct. The basic group is known
as a “family”, “clan”, or “cosca”. Each family claims sovereignty over a
territory, usually a town or village or a neighbourhood (borgata) of a
larger city, in which it operates its rackets. Its members call
themselves “men of honour”, although the public often refers to them as
“mafiosi”. The Mafia's core activities are protection racketeering, the
arbitration of disputes between criminals, and the organizing and
oversight of illegal agreements and transactions. Following waves of
emigration, the Mafia has spread to other countries such as Canada and
the United States.
