When we think about mafia we usually think about Sicily, or at least south Italy, but branches of the most important crime organizations are strongly present also out of their original places, the so called “Four Regions at Risk”, Sicily, Calabria, Campania and Puglia; thanks to 60’s and 70’s emigration from south to north Italy, but also to unaware Italian laws which forced suspected members of mafia going to north Italian cities, thinking they could be less dangerous far from Sicily ; the famous “obliged stay”.
Despite small southern Italian groups were present since 40’s, organized crime became a problem in the north only at the end of 70’s; sicilian gangs controlled drug trafficking and Milan was one of the most important crossroads.
Alfredo Bono from Bolognetta (Palermo) was one of the most important sicilian mobster present in Milan; he ordered to kill a famous local gangster, Francis Turatello, murdered in 1983 by two sicilians when he was jailed into a sardinian prison; Turatello was killed because he robbed a night club under Bono’s protection.
The most important boss from Catania was Angelo Epaminonda, who emigrated to Milan in 1969 when he was 24 years old; he was accused of 14 murders, robberies, drug trafficking, extortions, gambling and mafia association; he was sentenced to life in 1984.
He was linked with powerful “Cursoti” clan, which in that period was in war against Santapaola family; most of “Cursoti” members escaped from Sicily to avoid revenges, some of them went to Milan, others went to Turin, Mazzeo’s remained in Sicily waiting a good moment to emerge.
Families were in war; in 16 June 1982 boss Alfio Ferlito and four policemen was escorting him from Enna to Trapani prison, were murdered; two months before six Santapaola’s members were murdered and the boss wounded, the so called “26 April’s slaughter”.
The war arrived in Milan and Turin, where a lot of mobsters from Catania were murdered on the streets; the boss Luigi “Jimmy” Miano controlled drug trafficking and extortions. During the mafia war his cousins Gaetano and Santo were murdered in 1987, Giuseppe was murdered in 1990 when he went out of Turin prison.
Local authorities declared: “This guys came here without money and they would like to get rich before dyeing; they were so strong they submitted other groups present in that area, local gangs, Turkish dealers and Marseille clans”;
According to police inquiries, a lot of Turkish dealers were killed in Milan after they sent heroin to “families”, which never feared revenges; family led by Giuseppe Flachi after killing pressed them into cars to eliminate bodies.
In 1991 the police operation “Duomo Connections” sentenced more than 100 sicilian mobsters; they were accused of cocaine and heroin trafficking around Lombardia region; the last big operation was against calabrian gangs in 2002, they were accused of drug and weapons trafficking around north Italian regions.
Nowadays however mafia families present in the north are keeping a low profile, but they are still strongly present in a lot of places, especially where there are a consistent presence of immigrants who created sicilian or calabrian enclaves in the neighbourhoods; when in 90’s other ethnic groups arrived, mafia families becoming to deal with the new gangs which pay tribute to sicilians and calabrians linked with Cosa Nostra or ‘Ndrangheta; Kosovars replaced Turkish and became the principal families’ referents regarding heroin trafficking, but everybody acknowledges mafia’s authority.
According to authorities and testimonies, Cosa Nostra families in the north are formed by sicilian, calabrian, neapolitan and apulians born people or descendants together.
In Lombardia and Piemonte there would be two Commissions led by a Regional boss; in other regions are present crews or families which depends on original family’s places.
