Defending one's honour and that of one's family can thus be a powerful motive for becoming a guappo or a camorrista. This is illustrated by the case of Antonio Spavone who, after his elder brother, Carmine a young emerging guappo-was murdered in 1945, sought revenge on his killer, Giovanni Mormone. However, it would be a serious misrepresentation to argue that there were no sincere feelings of friendships or comradeship among camorristi. Among the important reasons given by criminals for engaging in criminal action a recurring theme of the agent's discursive consciousness and clearly of his practical consciousness, and closely bound up with the notions of honour, family, and friendship was vendetta. They were focused on the criminal organization and the use of all possible values as a means to an end which would eventually be conducive to the money-making projects of the business Camorra.
