Gambino Crime Family 101

A law school in Italy has added a new course to its criminal law curriculum:  the Mafia.  According to Law.Com, the class will "look at the roots of organized crime in Italy and follow its development under Fascist rule, in postwar years and up until the present day. It explains the differences between various syndicates in the country -- including the Sicilian Mafia and the Calabrian 'ndrangheta, which investigators say is becoming the most powerful crime organization in Italy -- and examines how they raise money."   

Will the class have any problems with enrollment?  Fuggetaboutit...more than 500 students have already signed up.
