It should be noted that this trilogy of ‘The Godfather’ tells the story of ‘Vito Corleone’, the capo who was the most respected in New York City. In the other two films, the story turns to the life of his children and how they take over their father’s business.
However, this was not the only poster pasted on his wall. According to said medium, there was another one from the ‘Joker’ movie, as well as viagra, condoms, fine and expensive designer suits, lotions and boxes of cash.

In the same way, a newspaper was found in which the capo wrote all kinds of information on matters of national politics. He also wrote down personal details, such as the rejection of his daughter, whom he has never met, according to what could be read.
On the other hand, a folder was found with different finances that said mobster handled. In this, there were accounts of at least 100,000 euros (more than 494 million Colombian pesos at the current exchange rate) for all his luxurious expenses, according to information from the EFE agency.
After this first hiding place, on January 18 the Italian Police found a second discovery: a house where Denaro would have lived. It was located at 34 Maggiore Toselli street, one kilometer from the first one where the poster and the finance folder were found. There, they discovered a room hidden behind a closet in which there were jewels and a number of precious stones, according to different Italian media.

Until now, no more information has been released about the discoveries in the different hideouts of the capo, who is waiting to be sentenced.
