In 1891, Vito Corleone (born Andolini) was born in the small village of Corleone in Sicily. In 1901, after his parents and brother were killed by Corleone's Don, Ciccio, Vito fled the country and left to find his future in the America.
His son Michael fled to Sicily in 1946, after murdering drug kingpin Virgil Sollozzo and his bodyguard Captain McCluskey, seeking refuge with Tommasino. Whilst here, Michael married his first wife Apollonia and later saw her killed at the hands of his trusted bodyguard Fabrizio. He left shortly afterwards and did not return again until 1980, where he came to watch his son Anthony perform at the Teatro Massimo in Palermo. It was here that Michael's daughter Mary was murdered by Mosca.
