The Clericuzio crime family was a criminal organization that originated as a small but violent clan in Sicily before moving to the United States, controlled by Domenico Clericuzio.


The Clericuzio family began many years ago in Sicily where they defeated the Forlenza family by murdering Pietro Forlenza on his sickbed. When Benito Mussolini rose to power in Italy, the Clericuzios opposed him with force. They murdered the local Fascist prefect, they attacked Fascist garrisons, and when Mussolini gave a speech in Palermo they stole his prized bowler hat and umbrella imported from England.

Because of this, there was a massive concentration of armed forces in their province. Five hundred members of the Clericuzio clan were killed outright, while another five hundred were exiled to the arid islands in the Mediterranean that served as penal colonies. Only the very heart of the Clericuzio survived, and the family shipped young Domenico Clericuzio to America, where he managed to thrive and form a successful business empire.
