In the summer of 1945, the admired, respected, and many times feared patriarch leader of a Sicilian-American family introduces himself while sat in his classic office chair made with noble antique wood, holding his pet cat on his lap. Formally wearing a tuxedo with a red rose on the lapel specially for his daughter’s wedding, he patiently hears the requests of his allies during an intermission, inside of his hidden office in his New York mansion. With a set filled with details such as his old colonial desk on the back with a lot of carvings on the side, feet, and drawers, with a black rotary dial telephone over the desk next to a box of cigars and other accessories, Iron Studios present their statue "Don Vito Corleone - The Godfather - Deluxe Art Scale 1/10", with the main character of one of the greatest and most influential movies ever made, the first of the cinematic trilogy and successful franchise, known as a milestone in the gangster genre, influencing new productions to this very day.
Iron Studios also bring a regular version of the statue "Don Vito Corleone - The Godfather - Art Scale 1/10", with a simpler and smaller base, with Don Vito on his chair over the old floor of his mansion and the logo of the movie on the front.
Based on homonymous book written by Mario Puzo, and directed by Francis Ford Coppola, The Godfather from 1972 is the first part of a trilogy that tells the story of the criminal Italian American family Corleone, detailing their ascension and fall in a story about violence, family, friends, and loyalty. Founder and Don of the Corleone family, Vito Andolini Corleone is an orphan Sicilian immigrant that built an empire in the highly organized Italian American Mafia. Vito supervises a business founded on gambling, contraband, prostitution, and union corruption, but he’s known as a kind and generous man that lives by a strict moral code and loyalty to his friends, and above everything, to his family. Known as a traditionalist that demands respect in proportion to the person status; even his closes friends refer to him as “The Godfather” or “Don Corleone”. Known as the Godfather, in his classic office, life and death decisions are made by him, his children, and his Consigliere, an advisor and right hand of the family. Chosen for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 1990, The Godfather, was released on March 24th of 1972, and released again on February 24th of 2022 to celebrate its 50th anniversary!
