The life of Matteo Messina Denaro arrives at the cinema with Bamboo Production : Marco Belardi ‘s
Company has purchased the rights to the book ” U Siccu ” by Lirio Abbate (published by Rizzoli ) and will make a film for the big screen. It will be an impressive production and the direction will be entrusted to an important Italian director.
Lirio Abbate, journalist at the forefront of the fight against the mafia, outlines in his book – 10,000 copies sold – the complex portrait of Italy’s most dangerous fugitive: the young lover of luxury and the “fiminaro” of Palermo nights; the ruthless killer, the boss, the strategist, the mafioso who endorsed and oversaw the massacre choice of Cosa Nostra in the 1990s. And then the father, the elusive fugitive, the businessman who has forged indissoluble ties with politics, entrepreneurship and Freemasonry.
By showing the role that the boss had in the mafia hierarchies, the book explains why the capture of Matteo Messina Denaro, custodian of the mafia’s secrets, takes a decisive step in defeating the Cosa Nostra.
