06:59 |

Lucia Riina, the daughter of notorious Sicilian mob Salvatore "Toto" Riina, married Vincenzo Bellomo on Wednesday in the Italian town of Corleone.
Riina, 28, married Bellomo, a 34-year-old salesman, in a publicized wedding in Corleone's Immaculata church in front of 100 invited guests and journalists.Riina was given away by her brother, Giuseppe, as her father, the Mafia's former "boss of bosses", sat in prison. Giuseppe, 30, was released from jail in February after serving time for Mafia crimes.
Brother Giovanni and uncle Leoluca Bagarella, also Mafia bosses, missed the wedding because they are incarcerated. Giovanni is serving two life sentences for murder and their father has been in jail since 1993."Our thoughts go to those who could not be here,” the groom, Vincenzo Bellomo, told the guests, according to reports in Italian newspapers.
Lucia's mother, Ninetta Bagarella, who is also the sister of Leoluca Bagarella, wore black and carried her daughter's veil.Riina is currently service 12 life sentences for crimes that include the 1992 murders of anti-Mafia magistrates Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino. In May, the Italy Supreme Court ruled Riina, 78, must remain in a high-security prison because he is too dangerous.Riina is described as the real "Godfather" as he was a powerful Mafia boss who was raised in Corleone, similar to the epic movie's main character Vito Corleone, who was played by Marlon Brando. Riina became the boss of the Corleonesi in 1974 and ran the family during the Second Mafia War, which took place from 1981 until his arrest in 1993. During his reign, the Corleonesi became the most powerful family in Sicily's Cosa Nostra.
