Portillo travels to the southern city of Agrigento, here he explores the ancient Greek Temple of Juno, the gateway to the Valley of the Temples. He then travels inland to Enna to visit the former Mafia stronghold of Gangi. In Syracuse, Portillo visits the controversial monolith - Monumento ai Caduti italiani d'Africa (Monument to the Italian Fallen of Africa).
