Il capo dei capi: The life of a notorious mafioso boss

Il capo dei capi: The life of a notorious mafioso boss

Il capo dei capi (The Boss of the Bosses) is a six-part Italian miniseries that aired on Canale 5 between October and November 2007. It tells the story of Salvatore Riina, alias Totà u Curtu, a mafioso boss from Corleone, Sicily, who rose to power in the 1970s and 1980s and became one of the most feared and ruthless criminals in Italian history.

The miniseries is based on the book-inquiry of Giuseppe D'Avanzo and Attilio Bolzoni, and features a cast of acclaimed actors, such as Claudio Gioà as Riina, Daniele Liotti as Biagio Schiro, a fictional police officer who pursues Riina for decades, Salvatore Lazzaro as Bernardo Provenzano, Riina's right-hand man and successor, and Simona Cavallari as Teresa, Riina's wife.


The miniseries covers Riina's life from his childhood in poverty to his rise in the ranks of the Corleonesi clan, his war against rival mafiosi and state institutions, his involvement in several notorious murders, such as those of judges Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, his arrest in 1993, and his imprisonment until his death in 2017.

Il capo dei capi was a huge success in Italy, attracting millions of viewers and receiving positive reviews from critics and audiences alike. It was also broadcast in several other countries, such as the UK (under the title Corleone), France, Germany, Spain, and Sweden. The miniseries was praised for its realism, accuracy, and performances, but also sparked some controversy for its portrayal of Riina as a complex and charismatic character.

If you are interested in watching this gripping and fascinating miniseries, you can find it online with Swedish subtitles under the keyword "Il.capo.dei.capi.2007.Swesub.DVDrip."[^1^]. You will not regret it!

Il capo dei capi is not only a biographical miniseries, but also a historical and social portrait of Italy in the second half of the 20th century. It shows how the Mafia infiltrated and corrupted various sectors of society, such as politics, business, media, and religion, and how it challenged and resisted the efforts of the state and the law to fight against it. It also depicts the impact of Riina's violence and terror on the lives of ordinary people, as well as on his own family and associates.

The miniseries also explores the psychological and moral aspects of Riina's personality and actions. It portrays him as a man who was driven by ambition, greed, pride, and paranoia, but also by loyalty, love, and faith. It shows how he justified his crimes as a way of defending his clan and his territory from external enemies, but also how he betrayed and eliminated his own allies when they became a threat or a liability. It reveals how he was admired and respected by some, but also hated and feared by many.

Il capo dei capi is a miniseries that will keep you hooked from the first to the last episode. It will make you witness the rise and fall of one of the most powerful and notorious criminals in history. It will make you question the nature of evil and justice. It will make you wonder how such a man could exist and what made him what he was. It will make you think about the role of the Mafia in Italy and in the world. It will make you feel a range of emotions, from anger to pity, from horror to admiration. 29c81ba772
