Albert Volpe is a fictional character appearing in The Godfather Part III. He is portrayed by Carmine Caridi. Volpe is the boss of the Chicago Outfit in the 1970s.[1]

The Godfather Part III[edit]

Albert Volpe is one of the dons on the Commission following the end of the old regime. He was known to be a man with an eye for big business, and was one of many who attempted to gain a fortune by investing in Michael Corleone's casinos, which, once sold, made him a multi-millionaire.

However, Volpe's success was short-lived, for, at a Commission meeting in Atlantic City, Volpe and most of his fellow dons were wiped out by Joey Zasa's assassins. Volpe could have survived the attack, but was too concerned about retrieving his lucky coat, and was mowed down in a hail of bullets.
