The Mangano crime family were led by Don Samuele Mangano, an old-time Sicilian who moved to America in order to expand his business empire. Mangano was respected by Michael Corleone and Hyman Roth, who he had met through Mangano's intermediary, his nephew Moose Mangano from New York. Mangano was at Roth's birthday party in Havana, where he got control over the Sevilla Biltmore after Roths death, but was forced to flee when Fidel Castro took power. Their family color is cyan or light blue.

Following the revolution, Mangano entered a deal with Dominic, who allowed him to open a warehouse in Miami, to ship cars back to Sicily. However, Hyman Roth later prepared an attack on Dominic, knowing he will blame Manganos, which sparked off a mob war. Even after Roth's treachery was discovered, the Trapanis had no choice but to continue the war. Eventually the Manganos were eliminated when Dominic and his made men destroyed their compound.
