Born Francesco Raffaele Nitto in Angri, in the province of Salerno(Campania), he became the "new king of Chicago" when Al Capone was arrested for tax evasion, although some believed Paul Ricca held more power in the mob.
Nitti was eventually sentenced to stand before a grand jury, but committed suicide with two shots to the head. He was later succeeded by Louie Russo.
Behind the scenesEdit
The photo of a deceased Nitti is seen in the 'Mattresses' montage sequence in The Godfather.
