Riassunto: Mafia. Gangsters. Jazz clubs, hot women, beautiful tailor-made suits, real men. Glitter and glamour. In picturing the mafia, we can't ignore the appealing images. Images we picked up in movies and on television, advertising campaigns and posters. Their attraction is well illustrated in Ray Liotta's first words in Goodfellas: "As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster". Real mobsters were inspired by the portraits of their (fictitious) buddies on screen and the other way around. There is a distinct mutual influence between art and reality. In this book, we focus on that interaction, through the selection of the most beautiful pictures from film and reality, blended with intriguing information. In this combination, the myth of the dazzling gangster comes back to life. Meet notorious mobsters from North-America and the rest of the world. Plunge in the world of speakeasies, cigars, whisky, borsalinos, powerful dons and close families.
