The Sacra Corona Unita (SCU) is an Italian Mafia syndicate based in the Apulia region of southeastern Italy.


SCU was originally a break away faction of the Neapolitan Camorra. In the late 20th century they benefited from the Balkan Wars and had a profitable relationship with the Albanian Fares and the Grey Wolves. In the 2030s-2046, they were embroiled in a war with the Calabrian N'drangheta which almost destroyed them. They have a seat in the "Alta Commissoine".[1]


The Sacra Corona Unita is an extremely hierarchical organization with 13 ranks and a council. It is the syndicate least prone to either infiltration or infighting due to its small size and complex initiatory rites.[2]


Like the other major Italian syndicates it's involved in smuggling, protection rackets, and drug dealing.[3] The syndicate is also involved in the trafficking of arms. SCU has had success expanding into Eastern Europe.[4]
