The Clemente crime family is the youngest of the three Mafiafamilies in Empire Bay. It gained its place as one of the three major Empire Bay families after the two major families were weakened by the Vinci-Moretti War.
The family was founded by Don Alberto Clemente in 1929. At the end of the Vinci-Moretti War, the Vinci crime family controlled about eighty percent of the mafia's business in the city. Some time later, the Clemente family took advantage of the other families being weak from the war and took control of some of the businesses the Vinci family formally had. The family was viewed as second rate by the other families due to the way that Alberto Clemente ran it. However, after the bombing of Don Clemente and the rest of his top capos, the family became much weaker causing some members like Henry Tomasino to switch families, and after Clemente's death the family lost a lot of power. The family is still present after the events of Mafia II and are seen in Jimmy's Vendetta roaming the streets in their territory.
