"An unprecendented enrichment of the city. That would be the way. I will summarize what the Urban Italia Programme - “Restart from the Villas” meant for our city.
We battle constantly and everyday against the idea that my city, our city Bagheria is associated only with the idea of Mafia. We do not want to hide the past, but at the same time we are obligated to make note of all the good that this community has realised.
Today Bagheria is a city that has succeeded in constructing and achieving results in isolating the Mafia and guaranteeing its citizens an efficient and legitimate administration and civic life. 
The Urban programme has contributed significantly to this effort. Not only with that which is visible to the eyes of everyone, like the renovated piazzas, streets and historic palaces, but also the joyful, recreation and cultural activities that were sustained by the programme, and which offered our citizens opportunities of participation and exchange, that which is considered Governance"
by Biagio Sortino, Major of Bagheria
