A criminal known as ‘Libanese’ has a dream: to conquer the underworld of Rome. To carry out this unprecedented feat he puts together a ruthless and highly organised gang. Their progress and changes in leadership take place over twenty-five years, from the 1970′s into the ’90′s, and are inseparably intertwined with the dark history of modern Italy: terrorism, kidnappings and corruption at the highest levels of government. Throughout these years Police Lieutenant Scialoja sticks to the gang’s trail, trying both to bring them to justice and to win the heart of Dandi’s girlfriend Patrizia. It’s now 1981 and the Rome crew are in disarray: Libanese is in the morgue, full of holes, which sparks a race to find the killers and exact revenge before the police can make arrests. It also creates a power vacuum with Freddo and Dandi in the frame to be the new boss.

This is the saga of a group of friends who end up running Rome's criminal empire despite the Mafia and Comorrah in Naples. I could have watched this series back to back. The action and fast pace is true to life and keeps the watcher on the edge of their seat. Set in the seventies, the scenery reflects this and style of dress with appropriate music. I was hooked from the start. Great series, which I highly recommend. Lots of twists and turns to keep viewer guessing. Obviously subtitled, but I'm used to this and doesn't detract from the story, if anything adds to it because I don't miss what is being said, unlike other dramas out there where actors mumble, intentionally or not. Watch series 1 first.
