Cadaveri Eccellenti: Excellent, or more appropriately, eminent corpses, is a term created by the Italian author Leonardo Sciascia, to denote public or noteworthy figures killed by the Mafia in Sicily. The original victim may have been a doctor, Giuseppe Montalbano, murdered in March 1861. The last of the Nineteenth Century was Emanuele Notarbartolo in 1893.
