IL CAPO DEI CAPI
Salvatore “Totò” Riina, 16 November 1930 in Corleone – 17 November 2017 in Parma),
called Totò ‘u Curtu (Sicilian: Totò the Short), was an Italian mobster and chief of the Sicilian Mafia,
known for a ruthless murder campaign that reached a peak in the early 1990s when the assassinations of
Antimafia Commission prosecutors Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino caused widespread public revulsion
and led to a major crackdown by the authorities.
He was also known by the nicknames la belva (“the beast”) and
il capo dei capi (Sicilian: ‘u capu di ‘i capi, “the boss of bosses”).
This amazing 6 part mini series is one of the greatest mafia movies made in recent years
and puts itself far clear of other classics such as the ‘Godfather’ when it comes to a true mafia story.
Cosa Nostra superboss ‘Salvatore “Totò” Riina’ was arrested and after 23 years in prison receives a visit from
a friend that begins the start of an epic.
