Giorgio Clericuzio was the son of Domenico Clericuzio, last descendant of a powerful dynasty of Sicilian mafiosi.

Biography

After a career as a soldier and caporegime (known as a bruglione or baron) in the family, Giorgio was called together with his brothers, Vincent and Petie, and his cousin Pippi De Lena, to exterminate Mafia family members of the Santadio family in Palm Springs, guilty of the death of Silvio, the youngest son of Don Domenico.

Career

In 1965 he was directed to the Wharton School of business, where he learned the secrets of high finance and capital management. After his studies, Don Domenico sent him to work on Wall Street, where the money of the mafiosi was laundered. He later taught these arts to his cousin Cross and nephew Dante.

Succession

When his father died he became the new Don, but later handed this position over to his cousin Croccifixio as a series of incidents occurred which resulted in the deaths of several members of the family, including Vincent, Petie and Cross's wife Athena Aquitane. It was at this time that Rose Marie confronted him about the murder of Dante, and he unwittingly revealed to her that Cross had been involved.

Giorgio visited his cousin Lenny Fortunato, Billy De Angelo's driver, once it had become known that De Angelo was a traitor, and interrogated him, subtly intimating what would happen to him if he withheld information. Not long afterwards, the lifelong bachelor finally married Lenny's sister Della.

Personality and traits

Giorgio and Della.

With an Anglo-Saxon appearance, Giorgio was stoic and rigorous, reserved and of few words. He was the only one able to exercise a certain ascendant on his father, showing on several occasions his ferocity, but nobody was able to guess his thoughts and intentions, making him an opponent of which it was impossible to prevent his moves. He did have a tender side, most noticeably in his shy romance with his cousin Della.

Behind the scenes

In the series he was played by David Marciano.
