Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Antonio Commisso (born Siderno, Italy, January 16, 1956) is an Italian criminal and a member of the 'Ndrangheta, a criminal and mafia-type organisation in Calabria, Italy. He was a fugitive since 2005 and included in the list of most wanted fugitives in Italy until his capture on June 28, 2005, near Toronto, Canada. He is also known by his nickname "l'avvocatu The lawyer." Commisso was born in Siderno into a traditional 'Ndrangheta family, the Commisso 'ndrina. Siderno was the fiefdom of Antonio Macr the undisputed boss at the time. In January 1975, Macr was killed in the so-called first 'Ndrangheta war. His right-hand man - who was wounded in the attack on Macr - Francesco Commisso was intended to be his successor. However, he appointed his son, Cosimo Commisso, also known as "the quail" ("'u quagghia"), as the new boss of the locale of Siderno.
