ROME, ITALY - 6 APRIL, 2014: Customers have dinner at Pizza Ciro, a pizzeria and restaurant seized by the police in January, in Rome, Italy, on April 6th 2014.
Pizza Ciro, along with more than 20 other well-known restaurants in Rome, is under special court administration after police raids in January, when arrest warrants were issued for 90 people accused of being linked to the Contini clan, part of the Neapolitan Mafia known as the Camorra. Prosecutors allege the restaurants were used for money-laundering to "clean” some of the illicit funds stemming from drug-running, extortion rackets and usury.
