Recommended Posts

 


Actually, when we talk about the Italian Organized Crime ( Mafia-Like Organizations ), we rarely distinguish between the various types of criminal organizations that populate Italy and that often migrate to other continents safeguarding traditions of the criminal organization they were part of.


The main differences are found in:


  • Jobs they handle
  • The way they threat petty crime
  • The way they act
  • Where they come from

In 2021 have been officially recognized some mafia-like organizations operating both in Southern and Northern Italy with countless imports of drugs and weapons from different continents.
What are these recognized criminal organizations?

  • Cosa Nostra ( or Sicilian Mafia ) - Sicily
  • 'Ndrangheta - Calabria
  • Camorra - Campania
  • Sacra Corona Unita - Puglia
  • And other small groups affiliated with these criminal organizations 

 

 

WHERE IT ALL STARTED:

COSA NOSTRA
The criminal organization that started the phenomenon commonly referred to as the "mafia" 

General Info: With the passing years the structure and the organization have been lost, in fact the old marked hierarchy ( Consigliere, Capodecina, Soldier etc.. ) has practically disappeared. The structure of this criminal organization is now homologated to the structure of the other organizations since the criminal organization way of acting has changed radically compared to the last century.

Jobs they Handle: drugs trafficking, guns trade, money laundering, protection service, manipulation of the legal system.

Petty Crime: Cosa Nostra ( or Sicilian Mafia ) doesn't care about petty crime and the reason is simple. Actually one of their income just comes from protection service that is related to petty crime.

Violence: MEDIUM - If the situation is resolvable in a contained or violent way, they will choose the contained way unless they want to teach a lesson.

Where they come from: Sicily, Italy.

'NDRANGHETA 
The most violent mafia-like organization born in Italy

General Info: The mafia-like criminal organization commonly called "'Ndrangheta" is not only a simple mafia-like criminal organization. It is the most violent mafia-like organization. It has a precise structure followed and idolized so much that it has never been changed since its inception.

Structure: Everything comes to life through families called "ndrine". A set of ndrine is called "local". A local has its boss who has the right to decide if a person has to live or to die, an accountant, and a "crime" that deals with relations with other criminal organizations. The important thing is that there isn't just a "local" but there are several locals scattered all around the place they want to control. 

Jobs they Handle: drugs trafficking, guns trade, money laundering, protection service, manipulation of the legal system, countless investments on the stock exchange for foreign shares, scams

Petty CrimeThey do not admit it, therefore they usually repress the perpetrators of petty crime.

Violence: HIGH

Where they come from: Calabria, Italy

CAMORRA 
One of the most ancient mafia-like criminal organizations in Italy


General Info: What does "Camorra" mean? "Camorra [...], in the general meaning of the word, designates much more than the association [...] The word applies to all abuses of force or influence" ( Marc Monnier ). It is one of the most ancient mafia-like criminal organizations in Italy and the second one in terms of violence. 


Structure: This organization is divided into individual groups called "clans". Each clan differ from each other by type of influence on the territory, organizational structure, economic strength and their way to act. Each clan has a "boss" and each boss can manage up to hundreds of affiliates, depending on the power and structure of each clan.


Jobs they Handle: The main activities of the Camorra are drug trafficking, racketeering, counterfeiting and money laundering. Furthermore, it is not unusual for the Camorra clans to infiltrate the politics of their respective areas.

Petty Crime: They favor petty crime.

Violence: HIGH

Where they come from: Campania, Italy

Yeah you're right but taditions remain traditions. Italians have traditions that vary according to the place of origin and modern day italian-americans from America have close "ancestors" ( like grandparents or great-grandparents, since the emigration from Italy to America started in the 1920 ) who came from Italy and hand down their traditions.
You may say.. What kind of traditions? For example criminal organizations from southern Italy traditionally and apparently are very religious, they are people who are particularly attached to their parents and have particular uses which obviously, with time, mixed with American uses, but they still have relevance in my opinion for a correct interpretation.

Guide's good if you roleplay some sort of Vito Corleone, yeah


This is not a "how to properly roleplay an Italian Mobster Guide" and I don't seem to have written it anywhere. This guide ( which as you can see from the title is still a work in progress ) is an incipit of how Italian organized crime evolved starting from the origin.

You have to understand that LCN nowadays work completely different compared to 'Ndrangheta and old traditions. Hence why a lot of the comments are questioning this guide, and I don't feel like we should encourage people roleplaying imported italians with 'Ndrangheta backgrounds.
