Raciti died in Catania on after the end of the football derby between Catania and Palermo, as a result of liver damage caused by blunt object trauma, disproving an initial hypothesis which claimed his death was caused by a homemade firecracker. Raciti's death resulted in all of the Italian football matches, even the national team, to be suspended for a week.
