The purported jeweller allegedly became the new head of the Cosa Nostra after previous boss Salvatore "Toto" Riina, also known as "the beast" and the "boss of all bosses", died in prison a year ago. It was the first time clan leaders had gathered since Riina's death, prosecutors said.

"The need to reestablish certain rules that Cosa Nostra had lost along the way, they were applied less because of the organisation's overall disorganization", Lo Voi said.

His election marked a shift of power away from Corleone, the hilltop town that was Cosa Nostra's main base for years and was made famous by The Godfather novels and films.

Police recalled that the "provincial commission" structure was created in the 1950s as the decision-making forum for Sicilian and U.S. Mafia families.

His mother replied by telling him to be careful to which Fields shot back, "we're not the one (sic) who need to be careful". Heather Heyer , a 32-year-old paralegal and civil rights activist, was killed, and almost three dozen others were injured.

Mineo survived a 1992 ambush that killed his brother Giuseppe, around six months after another brother, Antonino, was murdered outside the family jewelry shop.

Mineo has already served 11 years in prison after he was arrested in a maxi-trial led by prosecutor and judge Giovanni Falcone that targeted the Cosa Nostra. As the eldest of the local clan leaders, he enjoyed particular respect, he said.

The Sicilian Mafia - the Cosa Nostra - managed to rebuild its leadership, known as the Cupola, after it had not met for years, reports say.

The man said to be the new head of the Sicilian Mafia has been arrested by Italian police along with 45 associates.

However, it did not continue to grow in strength at the same rate as the Calabrian-based 'ndrangheta or the Naples-based Camorra organised crime groups. But Italian officials said it continued increasing its financial and business activities.

"This is what emerges from the other investigations, that apparently facing this kind of situation, Palermo could not stay behind and not share with all the bosses what was to be the plan", Cafiero De Raho said.

Italy's Interior Minister Matteo Salvini tweeted that it was "an extraordinary intervention" by the Carabinieri (the country's police), "who have dismantled the new "cupola" of Cosa Nostra".
