Sicily is an island at the base of Italy. Sicily was one of the islands of Italy and it's the biggest of the Mediterranean Sea. Its area is estimated to 25,711 km2 (9,927 square miles). Sicily has nine provinces: Palermo, Catania, Messina, Agrigento, Trapani, Siracusa, Ragusa, Caltanissetta and Enna. It is known as the birthplace of the Cosa Nostra, also known as the Mafia.

In 1891, Vito Corleone ( Andolini) was born in the small village of Corleone in Sicily. In 1901, after his father, mother and brother were killed by Corleone's Don, Ciccio, Vito fled the country and left to find his future in the America.

Vito returned to Sicily in 1922 to exact vengeance on Don Ciccio with the help of his friend Tommasino, who became the new Don. Vito left to America once more, his vengeance fulfilled.

His son Michael fled to Sicily in 1946, after murdering drug kingpin Virgil Sollozzo and his bodyguard Captain McCluskey, seeking refuge with Tommasino. Whilst here, Michael married his first wife Apollonia and later saw her killed at the hands of his trusted bodyguard Fabrizio. He left shortly afterwards and did not return again until 1980, where he came to watch his son Anthony perform at the Teatro Massimo in Palermo. It was here that Michael's daughter Mary was murdered by Mosca.
