About Salvatore Pappalardo

  • Salvatore Pappalardo STD JUD (23 September 1918 – 10 December 2006) was an Italian Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church who was Archbishop of Palermo for over 25 years, from 1970 to 1996.
  • He was the first senior clergyman from Sicily to speak out against the Mafia, breaking its code of omertà (vow of silence). He should not be confused with the still-living current Archbishop of Siracusa, Italy of the same first and last name, who is not a Cardinal but is, like this one, a metropolitan archbishop of an ecclesiastical province.
