Does anyone know who the historical figure was that had important implications for Italian-American Mafia?
I tend to think it's Mussolini, but I am not 100% sure. If anyone is 100% sure, let me know please.
I don't think it was Mussolini, but then again because of him, so many italian mafiosi fled to America. I would have to say Mario Puzo, and the reason for that is his book and movie "The Godfather." They were kind of like a guide to being a mobster. Its kind of funny because even though what happened in the book and movie would never happen in real life, mobsters would try to copy the images in "The Godfather", which in turn made Hollywood copy from the mobsters.
