Bernardo Provenzano, 80, known as the "Godfather of the Sicilian mafia," is suffering from Parkinson's disease and is at an advanced enough stage where he doesn't recognize visitors or family, TheLocal.it said.
Provenzano was captured near his birthplace, Corleone, Sicily, in 2003 -- after 43 years on the run.
Provenzano's birth place is also the namesake for the Corleono family in filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola's "Godfather" trilogy.
