Michele Sindona was an Italian banker, deep state operative and member of the P-2 lodge.


By 1957 he had become closely associated with the Gambino family and was chosen to manage their profits from heroin sales.[citation needed] Within a year, he bought his first bank and moved into larger scale financial fraud. He was hailed as "the saviour of the lira" by Giulio Andreotti[1] and was named "Man of the Year" in January 1974 by US Ambassador to Italy, John Volpe.


On July 11, 1979, Giorgio Ambrosoli, the lawyer who was commissioned as liquidator of Sindona's banks, was murdered in Milan. Michele Sindona was charged with ordering his assassination, which was carried out by an American hit man.[2] Sindona was convicted and imrisoned for life. He was poisoned in prison.


Sindona's connections were explored by Mark Lombardi.[3]
