Vito Genovese’s Biography

He emigrated from his native land to New York in 1913, where he joined the US mafia working for Giuseppe Joe Masseria in the 1920s. In his youth he met Charles “Lucky” Luciano, becoming his a man of trust during the war castellammarese, the friendship of these characters would last a little over forty years. In April 1931, Luciano planned the betrayal and murder of Joe Masseria. Genovese, along with three other assassins, carried out Luciano’s plan. In September of the same year, Salvatore Maranzano, who had risen to be capo di tutti capi, tried to get rid of Luciano, but this one went ahead of him. Once Maranzano was assassinated, Luciano organized his family and named Genovese as his capo bastone or sotto capo. In 1936 Luciano was imprisoned and Genovese assumed control of the family.

In 1937, Genovese had to escape to Italy to evade justice for the murder of Ferdinand Boccia, which he had committed in 1934. During his stay in Italy he became a good friend of Benito Mussolini, donating 300 & nbsp; 000 & nbsp; USD to the fascist regime. Genovese continued his illicit activities by supplying cocaine in Italy, in exchange Mussolini told him about Carlo Tresca, a New York journalist who would be eliminated for publishing articles against fascism. On the instructions of Luciano, Genovese changed sides at the start of World War II, helping the Americans as a translator during the Allied occupation. He got involved in the black market of Sicily with the bosses of the local mafia Calogero Vizzini and Giuseppe Genco Russo. On August 27, 1944, he was arrested by the military police in Naples, but the main prosecution witness died in 1945.

He returned to New York where he again joined the family of Luciano, which was directed by Frank Costello, but the position as second of the family was occupied by Willie Moretti, for that reason he was degraded to caporegime. Eager to become the head of the family, in the 1950s he ordered the murders of Costello, Moretti and Albert Anastasia. Although Costello survived the attack on his life, he gave power to Genovese. When Genovese became the head of the family, he ordered the murders of Anthony Strollo and Anthony Carfano, former caporegimes who had been faithful Costello and replaced by Philip Lombardo, Gerardo Catena and Mike Miranda.

On November 14, 1957, Genovese organized a meeting with the heads of the Mafia, which was known as the Apalachin Conference and held at the home of Joseph Barbara, however the meeting was a failure because the The house was guarded by the New York Police Department. When they realized the raid, the bosses escaped through the forest near the house. Finally, in 1959 Genovese was tried and sentenced to 15 years for heroin trafficking. The sentence began on February 11, 1960 at the Federal Penitentiary in Atlanta. From prison he ordered the death of Frank Franse, who had had a relationship with his wife. He died on February 14, 1969.
