The Old Thieves

Audio Tracks 

(The Legends from Artegio) is the story of a generation of thieves who achieved their greatest victories in the sixties; their distinctive code of ethics, the various “categories” of delinquents inhabiting the city’s streets, their alliances with high ranking police officials that allowed them to operate, the betrayals that followed, and the price they ended up paying.
