German police nab fugitive Italian mobster and actor (ANSA) - Brindisi, January 28 - German police on Tuesday captured fugitive mobster Gennaro Solito, who was last year sentenced to 14 years in prison for belonging to the Sacra Corona Unita mafia. He had been living in Germany with a 27-year-old woman, police sources said.

First arrested in 2010, the 60-year-old convict was cast in the film Caesar Must Die, by Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, two years later while behind bars.

The movie tells the story of inmates at a high-security prison in Rome who prepare for a public performance of Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar.
