Video capture of Bernardo Provenzano. The Godfather

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernardo_Provenzano


Bernardo Provenzano born January 31, 1933 in (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corleone, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sicily) is a member of the en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sicily en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mafia (Cosa Nostra) and is suspected of having been the head of the en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corleonesi, a Mafia faction that originated in the town of en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corleone, and de facto en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capo_di_tutti_capi (boss of bosses) of the entire Sicilian Mafia until his arrest in 2006.
His nickname is Binnu u tratturi (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sicilian_language for "Binnie the tractor") because, in the words of one en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Informant, "he mows people down." Another nickname is The Accountant due to his apparently subtle and low-key approach to running his crime empire, at least in contrast to some of his more violent predecessors.
