ABSTRACT
The article offers information regarding the arrest of Bernardo Provenzano, Italy's most wanted man who was on the run for over 40 years. Provenzano has become the godfather of the Sicilian Mafia in 1993. Over time, many outside the Mafia started to believe that he was dead until an Italian scientist used DNA to confirm that he was still alive. The prosecutor who was responsible for his capture in April 11, 2006 was Pietro Grasso.
