The Cell of Al CaponeScarface” from the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, USA, where he was confined looks like a room in an interwar house.

The gangster Alphonse Gabriel (Al Capone’s real name) came in this federal prison in May of 1932. While in detention here, Capone had an almost luxury treatment because it included all the facilities that he could have outside too. In one of the worst prisons, Al Capone was a “king” inside.

Although in jail, he was permanently in touch with the people who took care of his “business”. He spent eight months in this prison.

Scarface had in his cell a “meditation” spot: an office and a lamp, behind which he could solve problems; even if the cell walls were peeled and untidy, the room had a bohemian air.
