♪ >> it's one of the most beautiful places in europe, a place whose roots are very much the roots of the town where i live, but somehow i've never been able to get it right. to tell the story, any story of sicily. it's the biggest island in the head -- mediterranean. two main towns of palermo and catania on opposite sides. i'm done a show in palermo before. it was an epic goat rodeo, an failure of humiliating scale. this time i was going to get it right. there's the sicily we know from films, an evocative, deeply felt history that's not quite reality but cool anyway, right? there's the simple fact of its location, tucked away under the boot of italy, part of but not really part of that country. its own language, culture, its own history of norman, arab,
7:03 pm
spanish, roman, turkish, egyptian interlopers, all leaving their mark and their influence. i grew up in new jersey which was pretty much sicily on the hudson. the italian-americans next door weren't from milan, i could tell you that much. i guess what i'm telling you is i figured this will be easy. villa moraci, a certified hotel, restaurant and working farm that in this case produces olive oil. >> how many acres of property do you have? >> about 40 acres. it's one of the oldest organic farm in the mountains. >> this is guido, the proprietor. wow. so that's where potatoes come from. how freakin' hard can it be to make an awesome show in sicily? eat the nice food, drink the
7:04 pm
wine. in an idyllic village in the countryside, outside catania. how low impact can it get? so the plan was we go fishing. we get some fresh octopus, maybe some cuttlefish and explore the bounties of surrounding waters, all while working on our tans. with a local chef, fishermen, man of the sea. he's experienced. he knows where to get it good. >> you like the ocean? >> i love it. >> how do you see it in italian? >> ricci. >> one of my favorite things to eat. >> this is ture, my host. what else is out there? is there octopus? >> octopus and also cuttlefish.
7:05 pm
and i want to try and find some abalone and the bucce and small clams. i think they will be really full. >> i'm thinking really? are these prime fishing waters? i don't know about this. all the boat traffic and all these people and so close to the action i can't see much of anything living down there. >> okay. we anchor here. >> but i am famous for my optimism, so i dutifully suited up for what was advertised as a three-hour cruise. ♪ so i get in the water, and i'm paddling around. and splash. suddenly there's a dead sea creature sinking slowly so the seabed in front of me. are they kidding me? i'm thinking can this be happening? splash. there's another one. splash, another rigor mortis half-frozen freakin' octopus but it goes on.
7:06 pm
one dead cuttlefish, octopus, frozen sea urchin after another, splash, splash, splash. each specimen drops among the rocks or along the sea floor, to be heroically discovered and proudly shown off to camera, like i'm not actually washing as the confederate in the next boat over hurls them into the water one after another. i'm no marine biologist, but i know dead octopus when i sea one. pretty sure they don't drop from the sky and sink straight to the bottom. >> how many do we have? three? >> yeah. >> okay. >> i tried to get some patate now and also small abalone. >> strangely everyone believes the hideous sham unfolding before our eyes, doing their best to ignore the blindingly obvious. >> don't swim at it.
7:07 pm
>> then they gave up and dumped the whole bag of dead fish into the sea. at this point i begin desperately looking for signs of life, hoping that one of them would stir, become revived. i'm frantically swimming around the bottom littered with dead things looking for one that's still twitching so can i hold it up to the camera and end this misery, but, no, my shame will be absolute. for some reason i feel something snap, and i slide quickly into a spiral of near hysterical depression. is this what it's come to, i'm thinking, as another dead squid narrowly misses my head? almost a decade later back in the same country, and i'm still desperately staging fishing scenes, seeding the oceans with
7:08 pm
supermarket seafood, complicit in a shameful, shameful incident of fakery. but there i was, bobbing listlessly in the water. dead sea life sinking to the bottom all around me. you've got to be pretty immune to the world to not see some kind of obvious metaphor. i've never had a nervous breakdown before, but i tell you from the bottom of my heart something fell apart down there and it took a long, long time after the end of this damn episode to recover. ♪

7:11 pm
>> you don't find it anyplace else. >> apparently there were these white olives harvested from some secret tree only ture knows about. maybe it's next to his secret fishing hole. there was great sicilian wine apparently, and apparently i drank quite a lot of it. there was bread and olive oil, abalone served raw in the shell, baby sardine, also served raw with a splash of citrus and salt. >> and this is the baby sardine, totally raw without no match ingredients to taste better the fish. salud. >> thank you. >> if you ask a sicilian, right, say where you come from? the correct answer should be i'm italian. >> right. >> we say i'm sicilian. >> is sicily, italy? >> yes. >> should it be? >> i don't know, but we used to have influence from britains,

7:13 pm
arrived, you see crudo like this? >> i see it in poor families. >> the japanese sort of gave everybody permission to eat traditional foods, their own traditional foods. what are the great mother sicilian classic dishes? >> the anchovy. anchovy and parmegiana. [ speaking foreign language ] >> that's with the sardine. >> but it's an explosion of flower, because it's arab. born in the period when sicily was very poor. >> this i like. i even remember it. pasta, a true sicilian classic made with fennel, pine nuts, saffron and anchovy. serving alongside some sardines that have been curing in chestnuts and salt for days then lightly fried in oil. >> we have to use our hand, use our hand to eat the fish. >> no problem. i must have shrunk back to bed somehow, collapsed in a sodden drunken heap of self-loathing.

7:21 pm
the big change that has happened is that up until the mid-'80s, the late '80s, there were a great many sicilians who thought if they were honest and didn't have anything to do with the mafia, they could live without being affected by the mafia. apparently 80% of the businesses in palermo and 70% in the rest of italy that pay extortion. >> that's a lot. >> that's a lot. >> but not everybody pays the bite. a small but growing coalition of businesses have joined a group, a grass roots organization taking a stand against the mafia's traditional mere total control over the food chain, from farm to table. i come out of the restaurant business in new york. you got taxed with every laundry order every time they took your trash away. it was built in to all your basic services. >> here it's much more going around. christmas and easter. >> guy comes by. >> the guy comes by.

>> it's plain and simple extortion. >> given that that's a pretty straightforward situation, some of these guys who banded together, what happens, the guy shows up and says i'm not paying you. what happens next? >> well, apparently now the mafia has decided that it isn't worthwhile bothering with the people who belong to the group. there's so many others out there and why look for trouble. how true it is, i don't know. >> right. >> to belong to the group, you have to sign a pledge that you will not pay and that if you are approached, will you go to the police. >> right. >> then they send you to lawyers and to another organization which deals with the people who are actually having trouble. it's incredibly complicated. i mean, there are no easy answers. >> right. >> what about big farm? what about some of the things that are -- that are happening on a much more legitimate level? >> i mean, who is more

sicilians are big bastards. of course, we're being conquered by everybody. also our dialect. there are many words that are understood by other people. if i say sicilian dialect word, maybe an arab can understand me, and italian no. and the italian language comes from latin, something different. we are sicilians before italians, remember this. >> i'll never forget. >> look at this side of the meat. it's yellow, it's not white. when it's yellow, it means that the horse has been breed eating fresh grass.
