Il Capo dei Capi (The Boss of the Bosses) is a six-part Italian miniseries which debuted on Canale 5 between October and November 2007. It tells the story of Salvatore Riina, alias Totò u Curtu, a mafioso boss from Corleone, Sicily. Riina is played by Palermo-born actor, Claudio Gioè, and the series was directed by Alexis Sweet and Enzo Monteleone. The film is inspired from the eponymous book-inquiry of Giuseppe D'Avanzo and Attilio Bolzoni. Written by
Having been very fortunate to spend over five years living and working in Italy with my family I look out for 'Italian' series and found in Corleone an amazing storyline that took in events that I even remember! The story line is full of twists and turns and by starting with four young lads and telling their life stories I was (and still am) glued to my television. The two main characters of Toto Riina and his once best friend Schiro Biagio completely captivate you and the 'one step ahead of the other' storyline is spellbinding. You are completely engrossed in the various plots and to even imagine the horror going on around the lives of the Sicilian/Italian people is for us Brits, unimaginable! Loved it.
