Santo Virgilio was a gangster from Florida.


Virgilio was a shrewd and canny operator, with interests in hotels and casinos in Cuba in the 1950s. In the late 1950s, he was trying to make his own deal with the government of Fulgencio Batista, even though Batista was already in business with Hyman Roth. When Fidel Castro's revolutionaries took power in Cuba, Virgilio's casinos were nationalized.
