The Banda della Magliana

The Banda della Magliana is considered the most powerful criminal organization based in  Rome. The name, given to the gang by the press of the time, derived from the Roman neighborhood, where many of its members lived.

Banda della MaglianaIt was born in the latter 70s and became the first organization in the capital to unify the Roman criminality, diversifying their criminal activities such as kidnapping, horse race bet and drug trafficking. It extended its contacts to the major criminal organizations in Italy, such as Cosa Nostra and Camorra, as well as to members of the Freemasonry, secret service and Italian finance police.

For years it imposed its law in the capital to the point that the organization is thought to have played a role in many Italian mysteries, such as the Moro affair, the disappearance of Emanuela Orlandi and Pope John Paul II assasination attempt.

Many novels, television series and movies took inspiration from the Banda della Magliana, such as the movie Romanzo Criminale (Criminal Novel), based on the novel written by Giancarlo De Cataldo, directed by Michele Placido.

Romanzo CriminaleThe movie is set in Rome at the end of the 70s and tells the story of the most ruthless gang of  the era. The events related to the criminal organization developed over 25 years and mingle with the dark history of Italy, such as the terrorism of the Communist Party, the economic instability and the Italian economic miracle, undermined by the first great global oil crisis in 1974.

The movie received many awards, including 8 David di Donatello in 2006, 5 Silver Ribbons in 2006, and 2 Iomas (Italian Online Movie Awards) in 2006.
