- "We've worked with you for years. We should wet our beaks a little."
- ―Albert Volpe[src]
Albert Volpe was the boss of the Chicago Outfit in the 1970s.
Albert Volpe was one of the bosses on the Commission following the end of the old regime. He was known to be a man with an eye for big business, and was one of many who attempted to gain a fortune by investing in Michael Corleone's casinos, which, once sold, made him a multi-millionaire.
However, Volpe's success was short-lived, for, at a Commission meeting in Atlantic City, Volpe and most of his fellow bosses were wiped out by Joey Zasa's assassins. Volpe could have survived the attack, but was too concerned about retrieving his lucky coat, and was mowed down in a hail of bullets.
