Affiliation Andolini family

Antonio Andolini was the husband of Signora Andolini and the father of Vito and Paolo Andolini.


Antonio Andolini was born in the small village of Corleone in Sicily. As a young man, he had fought alongside Giuseppe Garibaldi during the liberation of Sicily. He was known to be a stubborn and proud man, who refused to buckle under pressure from higher powers, a trait that his son inherited. In 1901, Antonio refused the local Mafia chieftain Don Ciccio, who had him murdered for this insult. Paolo swore revenge on the Don, and was killed at his father's funeral. Antonio's wife soon suffered the same fate, but Vito escaped and later avenged his family.

Personality and traitsEdit

Antonio was known to be a stubborn, hot-headed, yet loving individual much like his grandson Santino. However it was these traits that got him killed, something that his son took note of and avoided during his own life.

Behind the scenesEdit

In the novel, Andolini does not refuse a tribute to Don Ciccio (who isn't named), but actually kills him in a public struggle before being killed the following day by the chieftain's guards, wielding luparas.
