WHICH ONES ARE THE MOST INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT MICHAEL CORLEONE AND WHY IS THAT?
First of all, we cannot keep closing our eyes to the fact that Michael Corleone is actually a woman. But why! Why? Why on earth is he posing as a man?! The answer is that the mafia is a male chauvinist institution, which does not give a woman the opportunity to climb positions in the organization even though she has gained a reputation as “tough guy”. The case of Vincenza ‘Bigfoot’ Costratti is paradigmatic. In an attempt to ingratiate herself before the boss of the Detroit mafia, Vincenza took down the entire Porcoparco “famiglia” in one fell swoop. (She dropped a one-ton bomb on its headquarters from a zeppelin.) And yet, the one who got promoted was a slavish “consigliere” whose only “merit” was to serve the coffee too hot when the boss received visits from other “famiglias” (A mafia family is not composed of a dad, a mom and the kids, but of about thirty unshaven men whose main occupations are to break legs and count banknotes.) So, what is so strange about young Michaela posing as a man?
