Lucio Gionti

Owner of Caffè del Kassaro, he will prepare for you an excellent mafia-free cappuccino. In the past he was attacked by the mobsters, with threatening phone calls, with fire. He has remained steadfast in his opposition to the mafia, even after they tried to force him to install poker machines. Literally, he threw them and their rigged staff out of his café.
