The paper analyzes the analogies and the connections between terrorism and the mafia, starting from the concept of «strategy of tension» and sets out the criteria which, on both sides, oversee the compatibility between the search for truth and the impartiality and independence of the magistrate. The conspiracy hypotheses or the alleged roles of the secret services do not obscure the substantially positive judgement on the judicial investigations characterized by a global vision and not limited to individual events. At the same time, the value of punitive choices able to rise up to the cabin of direction of the macro-phenomena and to counteract their economic infiltration is underlined.

Keywords: Terrorism and mafia; Strategy of tension; Judicial investigation.
