At the end of a monosyllahle its sound is short and sharp as : mi, ti, si, vi. It never sounds like the English o in cold, pole. U, u sounds like oo in hoots, but never like the Eng- lish u in 2ip, union. This vowel is sometimes short as in tu thou , and sometimes long as in cnra care , but never as n in duke. Further observations on pronunciation are given in the Second Fart of this Grammar. For the benefit of the student e, o, open shall be marked thus, g, g.

II suolo fangoso, immondo, pesto pel gran passare d'uomini e cavalli, le case piene di soldati, le mura sudice ed affumicate, la chiesuola ridotta una taverna, e la piazza ingombra di frascati sotto i quaii eran vivandieri con pane, grasce, barili di vino ecc, ed avean rizzata quivi la loro bottega con assai buon giudizio, sapendo che la vista della corda e delle forche era un ottimo trattato di mnemonica per quegli avven- tori che potessero scordarsi di pagare. Mentre Fanfulla s'aggirava considerando a chi gli convenisse dirigersi per domandar di Troilo, udi levarsi un bisbiglio tra la gente, s'accorse d'un agitarsi di persone nel lato ov' eran le forche, e vide poi che appoggiatavi una scala saliva un uomo ad.
Ac- costatosi per curiosita, vide poco lontano dal patibolo a pie d'un miiro la persona che pareva destinata al supplizio. Era una donna, colle mani legate dictro le reni, e, posta ginocchioni a piedi d'un cappuccino, si confessava. Fanfulla si maravigliava che avessero ad impiccare una femmina, ma gli crebbe la maraviglia vedendo che di sotto i paniii le spuntava fuori il fodero d'una spada.
The Article in the Singular. There are two articles iu Italian as in English: the definite article and the indefinite article. The definite article for masculine substantives is il and lo; for feminine substantives la. Before such combinations the Italian hardly tolerates the sound of anyother consonant; therefore, whenever a word beginning with s impura is preceded by one of the prepositions con, in, per, an i was generally prefixed to this word; for instance: con isdegno with anger, per iibdglio for mistake instead of con sdegno, per sbaglio.
This rule is nowadays not so strictly observed and especially before a proper noun: in Ispagna better in Spagna, in Iswesia better in Svezia. La is used before feminine nouns beginning with a consonant, as : la cdsa the house, la stanza the room. In the plural le case, le stanze.
In the singular all masculine and feminine nouns beginning with a voivel take the article V; the vowel 10 Lesson 1. The indefinite article is for masculine nouns nn, for feminine nouns iiiia. Before fe- minine nouns beginning with a vowel, the indef. We recommend the student, when learning these words by heart, to add the defin, article as well as the indefinite to each of them, be- fore proceeding to the subsequent exercises. Padre m. Tiie feminine plural of nouns usually retains the full article, as: le unime the souls, le gche the geese.

All masculine nouns ending in a form their plural in i, as : il poeta poet — I poeti ; il tema task — i tgmi. Words ending in co or ffo form their plural partly Avith h, partly without. In the First Part of this Grammar we shall always indicate the plural of these words. Monosyllables and all nouns ending in an accented vowel undergo no chanye at all, as: il re — I re; la cittd town — le cittu; U canape sofa — i canaj e.
Nouns ending in i, ie, and the very limited number of those ending in consonants, are also alike in the singular and plural, as: il dl the day — i dt The Substantive. The following are irregular: Dio God — gli del; VUgmo man — gli ugmini; la moglie wife — le mogli; mille a thousand — mila; Viigvo [egg] — le iigva; il pdto pair — le pdta; il hue ox — i biigi. For further observations on irregularities in the for- mation of the Plural see the Second Part of this Grammar. The plural of the article il is i, as: il padre — i padri; il cielo — i cieli.

L'uomo aveva tre fanciulli. No, non avevamo veduto i poeti. Third Lesson. The SubstantiYes in Connection with the Pre- positions. Italian nouns form some of the cases of the so- called declension, in the singular and plural, by- means of prepositions. Some of these prepositions, however, are not, as in EngUsh, simply put before the article, but contract with it into one word. The nominative and accusative are always aliJce.
The genitive, answering to the question ivliose? See Part II. IS Plural. The dative, answeriDg to the question to whom? The ahlatire, a case so frequent in the Italian language, is formed with the preposition da from, by, at. It is used to express a source or origin, distance or removal, and also a dwelling upon, a cliaractcristic token or fitness for anything.
Also to is rendered by da, when it expresses going to someone. It may be observed, however, that di commonly drops its final i and takes an apostrophe instead, as: un pddre a father, una mddre a mother. Da, on the contrary, is ne'ver apostrophised. On the other hand with the possessive adjectives mio, mia my; tuo, tua thy; siio, sua his, her, its; ngstro, nqstra our, and vgstro, vqstra your, etc.

Sono di vostra cugina. Fourth Lesson. The Substantives in Connection with the Prepositions continued. Frequently the substantives are governed by pre- positions, which appear almost in every sentence, and should therefore be learnt from the very beginning. They are simply ] ut hefore the noun with or without its article.
The contractions witli tra and the article are very rare. L'uccello e sul tetto. II gatto e dietro la stufa. Sei tu ini giardino. Siete voi in cucina? Luigi e da mio padre. I cavalli sono davanti la porta. Dopo la pioggia. Durante la notte. Avanti il giorno. II fanciullo e sotto I'albero. Queste- pera e per mia zia. Mia zia e in chiesa. Senza danaro money. Mia cugina sta a Parigi Paris nella casa di mia zia. Egli aveva le mani in tasca.

Avevate voi veduto le anitre Noi avevamo veduto le ducks nel cortile? Con chi With whom siete Noi siamo andati con nostro andati? Fifth LessoD. The Partitive. In English the word some or any often precedes a substantive, when no particular kind, measure, or quality is meant, as: some wine, some bread, auy ink, etc.
In Italian this relation is expressed by the prepo- sition di combined with the forms of the definite article, in the singular as well as in the plural. Thus, the wine, the beer, the oil is translated: il vino, la birra, rol'io; but some wine, some beer, some oil is: del vino, dclla birra, deU'olio. Egli vende del tobacco he sells tobacco and other ar- ticles. Egli vende tahdcco he is a tobacconist. Thus: We have no flowers. Non abhidmo ftbru You have neither money nor friends. Non avete ne dandro ne anilci. Avrb io? Shall I have? Io avrd del pane e della farina. Avrete voi anche del sale?
I re avranno deH'oro e dell'argentoi. Essi avranno 1 There are a great many examples like this to be found, where Italians put a word in the "partitive" which in EngHsh re- quires no article at all. Tu avrai del cacio or del formaggio. Luigi avra della carta e deH'inchiostro. Questo mercante vendc olio e aceto. Ave- vano esse del fiori?

He had a pursuant to a red notice issued against him by Interpol in January On May 29, Raffaele Vallefuoco, an important member of the Polverino clan, was arrested in the Rabat region. Vallefuoco is considered one of the biggest drug traffickers in Italy and was included on the list of the 50 most wanted fugitives.
According to Francesco Forgione , the former president of the Antimafia Commission , the Camorra is very active in gambling houses and money laundering in the Netherlands. The Camorra also uses the country to counterfeit clothes, and the clans most involved in this illegal activity are the Licciardi clan , the Di Lauro clan and the Sarno clan. Augusto La Torre , the former leader of the La Torre clan is suspected of having hid hundreds of millions of euros in Dutch banks, as the La Torre clan was very active in the country in the s transporting large cocaine shipments from South America to Naples via the Netherlands.
In , Raffaele Imperiale bought a coffee shop called Rockland Coffee in Amsterdam, where he sold soft drugs and was involved in large scale cocaine trafficking with the Dutch drug trader Rick van de Bunt. Imperiale worked in Amsterdam until In , two stolen Van Gogh paintings from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam in were recovered in a villa near Naples , connected to Raffaele Imperiale, accused of being one of the Camorra's prolific drug barons. Imperiale was sentenced to 18 years in absentia for drug offenses.
In the s, Umberto Ammaturo , a Camorra boss, established a virtual monopoly of cocaine trafficking to Italy from Peru, where he benefited from the protection and collusion of important personalities. The Camorra boss and member of the Mazzarella clan, Saltavore Zazo, was allegedly involved in a large scheme of international cocaine trafficking from Peru to Europe, with the intention to acquire total control of the Port of Callao ; one of his contacts was drug lord Gerald Oropeza, one of the biggest traffickers in Peru.
Camorra clans in Romania deal in money laundering. The Sacco-Bocchetti clan is a subgroup of the Licciardi clan and Manzo took care of the accounting of the clan, and often supervised the supply of drugs from abroad. His businesses in the country are valued at several million euros. According to the journalist Roberto Saviano , Spain after Italy is the European country most entwined with the Camorra. It is where the Camorra clans established its massive businesses revolving around drug trafficking and money laundering in real estate.
Camorra has been in Spain since the s. The most powerful clan acting in the country is the Polverino clan due to the number of people they have installed and because of the potential of their structure. The presence of the organization in the Costa del Sol is so strong that Camorra bosses refer to it as Costa Nostra' "Our Coast" , according to Italian journalist Roberto Saviano , a specialist on the Naples criminal underworld.
Another clan with influence in Spain is the Scissionisti di Secondigliano led by Raffaele Amato nicknamed Lo Spagnolo the Spaniard , because before creating his own clan, he controlled the drug trafficking operation from Galicia to Naples for the Di Lauro clan.
In February , the Spanish police arrested 14 members of the notorious Marranella clan. According to the Guardia Civil , the clan is one of the most important and violent criminal organizations dedicated to the international drug trade and is based in the Costa del Sol. The Camorra has had a presence in Switzerland for more than 50 years, undertaking money laundering but also arms trafficking and drug trafficking.
The Casalesi clan is present throughout the country, and according to the investigations into the clan, it has numerous Swiss bank accounts. In , Ciro Mazzarella, boss of the Mazzarella clan, decided to move to Switzerland, after losing a war between Camorra clans in Naples. From his logistics base in Lugano , he created an enviable economic empire with cigarette smuggling that arrives from Montenegro. Scotland has had its brush with the Camorra.
The La Torre Clan's empire was worth hundreds of millions of euros. Antonio had several legitimate businesses in Aberdeen, whereas his brother Augusto had several illegal businesses there. Augusto would eventually become a pentito in January A fourth Scottish associate made history by becoming the first foreign member of the Camorra and is currently serving a jail sentence in the UK. It has been reported that he also receives a monthly salary, legal assistance and protection. Saviano alleges that from the s, Italian gangsters ran a network of lucrative businesses in the city as well as many illegal rackets.
Saviano said Scotland's third city, with no history of organized crime, was seen as an attractive safe haven away from the violent inter-gang bloodletting that had engulfed their Neapolitan stronghold of Mondragone. Saviano claims that before the Italian clans arrived, Aberdeen did not know how to exploit its resources for recreation and tourism.
He further states that the Italians infused the city with economic energy, revitalised the tourist industry, inspired new import-export activities and injected new vigour in the real-estate sector. It thereby turned Aberdeen into a chic, elegant address for fine dining and important dealings. The hub of La Torre's UK empire, Pavarotti's restaurant, now under different ownership, was even feted at Italissima, a prestigious gastronomic fair held in Paris.
The restaurant was even advertised on the city's local tourist guides. Saviano further claims to have gone to Aberdeen and worked in a restaurant run by Antonio La Torre. The Camorristas operated a system known as "scratch" where they used to step up illegal activities if their legitimate ventures were struggling.
If cash was short they had counterfeit notes printed; if capital was needed in a hurry, they sold bogus treasury bonds. They annihilated the competition through extortions and imported merchandise tax-free. The Camorra were able to run all sort of deals because the local police had virtually no experience in dealing with organized crime. Although they broke the law, there were never any guns or serious violence, due to lack of rivals.
However, the suggestion that the city remains in the grip of mobsters has been strongly denied by leaders of the strong Italian community in Aberdeen. Moreover, Giuseppe Baldini, the Italian government's vice-consul in Aberdeen, denies that the Camorra still maintains its presence in Aberdeen. The Camorra existed in the United States between the midth century and early 20th century.
They rivaled the defunct Morello crime family for power in New York City. Eventually, they melded with the early Italian-American Mafia groups. Many Camorra members and associates fled the internecine gang warfare and Italian Justice and immigrated to the United States in the s. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation :. In the s, the Sicilian Mafia convinced the Camorra to convert their cigarette smuggling routes into drug smuggling routes with the Sicilian Mafia's assistance. Not all Camorra leaders agreed, leading to the Camorra Wars that cost lives.
Opponents of drug trafficking lost the war. The Camorra made a fortune in reconstruction after an earthquake ravaged the Campania region in Now it specializes in cigarette smuggling and receives payoffs from other criminal groups for any cigarette traffic through Italy.
The Camorra is also involved in money laundering, extortion, alien smuggling, robbery, blackmail, kidnapping, political corruption, and counterfeiting. It is believed that nearly Camorra affiliates reside in this country, many of whom arrived during the Camorra Wars. In , the Obama administration imposed sanctions on the Camorra as one of four key transnational organized crime groups, along with the Brothers' Circle from Russia, the Yamaguchi-gumi Yakuza from Japan, and Los Zetas from Mexico.
According to the media, there has always been alliances between the Camorra and the 'Ndrangheta members. The operation consisted in transporting the drugs from Venezuela and Colombia, through several European ports including the port of Amsterdam. At the port of Livorno , kilos of cocaine were seized.
On May 11, , a criminal alliance between the sinti criminal organization Casamonica clan , members of the Camorra, and affiliates from the 'Ndrangheta 's of Polistena , Taurianova and Melicucco was dismantled by the police. On March 21, , 19 arrests were made in Rome of alleged members belonging to the Licciardi clan of the Camorra and members of the Filippone 'ndrina and Gallico 'ndrina accused of drug trafficking.
Several Camorra clans have lasting relationships with the Cosa Nostra. Prominent elements of the Mafia such as Salvatore Riina , Leoluca Bagarella , Luciano Leggio and Bernardo Provenzano found themselves in contact with Camorra clans such as the Nuvoletta clan , members of the Camorra such as Michele Zaza and Antonio Bardellino , and with other groups that formed the Nuova Famiglia confederation in the s. This organization operated in various cities of Apulia during the s. According to the pentito Antonio Accurso, the Di Lauro clan has several links to the Sacra Corona Unita in question with regards to drug trafficking.
The relationship between the South American drug cartels and the Italian criminal organizations for over 50 years. Giuseppe Gallo called 'o pazz the crazy one , boss of the Limelli-Vangone clan, is said to having contacts with Colombian drug traffickers able to reach agreements for the purchase of large quantities of cocaine, supplying various clans in the Naples area. According to the Direzione Investigativa Antimafia , the Albanian mafia has alliances with the Mazzarella clan and with the Scissionisti di Secondigliano , both from Naples and with the Serino clan, from Salerno.
Roberto Saviano , an expert on the Camorra, spoke of the Albanian mafia as a "no longer foreign mafia" to Italy and stressed that the Albanians and Italians have a "brotherly" relationship with each other. Saviano notes that the Camorra feels great affinity with the Albanian crime families because both organizations are based on family ties.
Some Camorra clans, including the Giuliano clan, once led by Luigi Giuliano , have established business relationships with Chinese criminal gangs , especially in the sector of counterfeiting Italian brands. The Camorra clans imposed the final price of the products and in return they provided the services to get around the controls. In , investigators discovered a scheme between the Camorra and the Chinese gangs.
They exported industrial waste from Italy to China that guaranteed million-dollar revenues for both organizations. The industrial waste left Prato in Italy and arrived in Hong Kong. Among the Camorra clans involved in this alliance were the Casalesi clan , the Fabbrocino clan and the Ascione clan. In the beginning, the Nigerians were not tolerated by the Camorra but in recent times both organizations are making alliances.
The relations between the Camorra and Nigerian mafia concern mainly drug trafficking and prostitution. In particular, Camorra members allowed the Nigeria gangs to organize the trafficking of women in the territory in exchange for a share on the earnings. The Nigerian mafia produces synthetic drugs independently and sells them with the consent of the Camorra.
This alliance, however, can change from one moment to another, as the Nigerians have asked to be treated on par with other Italian mafias, for the fact that they are growing both as a military and as an economic force. These bills would then be transported to the Russian Mafia for distribution in 29 post- Eastern Bloc countries and former Soviet republics. In March , a massive international arms trafficking ring was dismantled by the authorities of Italy and Austria and coordinated by Eurojust.
According to the investigations, the alliance between the Camorra and the Austrians lasted for seven years, until the police dismantled the scheme. I dont know any cases, which are so big and where so many weapons have been sold. The new owners are also not "juvenile guarantors" but several members of the Camorra, one of the most dangerous criminal organizations in Europe. The weapons are believed to have come originally from Eastern Europe taken to Carinthia in Austria with the objective to arrive in Terzigno near Naples.
With most of the old Camorra clans decapitated, and their bosses either dead or arrested, the organization is experiencing a rise in youth criminal gangs trying to take their places. This phenomenon is called Paranza , which is Camorra terminology, for a criminal group led by youngsters or "small fish". In , Emanuele Sibillo was 18 and considered one of the first young and leading bosses of this new generation. In , he was shot dead by a rival baby gang. We can clearly see the baby gangs are criminals, or people who want to have criminal careers. But there's a vacuum, because the traditional families have lost their leaders.
In the centre of Naples the bosses are either in prison or they've become state witnesses, so there's this kind of space for younger kids to appear. They're 17 or 18 with criminal ambition, and they've got a sense of identity of what they want to do. According to Misso, the real power of the organization is now in the hands of the Licciardi clan , Mallardo clan , Moccia clan and Contini clan.
On 2 September , Ciro Mazzarella, one of the last historical godfathers of the Camorra, and head of the Mazzarella clan, died in his villa in the affluent neighbourhood of Posillipo , Naples at the age of According to reports, in , after the arrest of Marco Di Lauro , leader of the Di Lauro clan and fourth son of Paolo Di Lauro , the Contini clan became the most powerful clan of the Camorra, thanks to no internal split, and no having affiliates that became collaborators of justice.
The clan is present in the drugs trafficking, extortion, betting and counterfeiting, also investing hundreds of millions of euros in various countries of Europe. On 23 April , the powerful boss Mario Fabbrocino , leader of the Fabbrocino clan, died in the hospital of the Parma prison, where he was serving a life sentence for ordering the murder of Roberto Cutolo, Raffaele Cutolo 's only son, in Since June 26, , Maria Licciardi is considered the most wanted fugitive belonging to the Camorra, after she managed to escape of a huge police operation against her clan.
