Description The main objective of the submitted paper is to clarify the consequences of the creation, existence and development of less known Italian criminal structures of Sacra Corona Unita and Basilischi. I put special emphasis on the regional context and the role of large-scale´Ndrangheta and Camorra criminal mafia systems and the formation of these organizations. In the second part of the paper, the Italian organized crime issue is outlined from a less structurally sophisticated aspect – the criminal structure of Banda della Magliana. The importance of the second section results not from the existence of this organized criminal structure per se, but from the socio-political role this group kept during the 1970s and 1980s. The paper is structured into three main chapters, which reflect three circles of exposition of the issue of the “unknown mafia” – i.e. the regional context, the influence of large criminal systems on their formation and the summary of their development and activities.
