Raffaele Cutolo

O' Professore

Raffaele Cutolo was a notorious Italian criminal, considered one of the most powerful and influential bosses of the Camorra, the Neapolitan mafia. Born on February 20, 1941, in Ottaviano, in the province of Naples, Cutolo became a prominent figure in the Italian criminal landscape in the 1970s and 1980s.

Cutolo was the founder and leader of the criminal clan known as the Nuova Camorra Organizzata (NCO). His organization was involved in a wide range of illegal activities, including drug trafficking, extortion, murder, and control over much of the illicit trafficking in the Campania region.

His charismatic leadership and his ability to organize a vast network of affiliates earned him enormous authority within the Camorra and in Neapolitan society. His figure inspired many cultural works, including books, films, and television series, which helped make his story famous even beyond Italian borders.

Over the years, Cutolo was involved in numerous internal conflicts within organized crime, leading to a series of murders and reprisals. In 1983, he was arrested and sentenced to multiple prison terms for a range of crimes, including murder. He spent many years in prison, but never entirely lost his influence over the criminal scene.

The figure of Raffaele Cutolo represents a significant chapter in the history of Italian organized crime, symbolizing the power and brutality of the Camorra during its heyday.
