Lucky Luciano

When: Fri., April 24, 7 p.m. 2015

In 1945 New York Governor Dewey expels from the U.S. Salvatore Lucania, known as Charles "Lucky" Luciano (Gian Maria Volonté), the undisputed boss of Italian-American crime since 1931. In Italy, Luciano lived in Naples as a quiet and distinguished gentleman, but in reality he was the head of international drug traffic. Luciano’s drug trafficking history unleashed a controversy at the United Nations, between the American and the Italian delegates. Luciano, considered to have been the most powerful American Mafia boss of all time, died of a heart attack at the Naples airport in 1962, where he was meeting a producer who wanted to make a movie on his life story.
