How this italian organzied crime work and how it’s differed from other italian groups like the cosa nostra, camorra or ndrangheta?

Are they more powerful than the camorra?
Their presence outside of Italy?

I saw that members of the Camorra created the SCU.
If its true, why they separed themselves from the Camorra? And how is it different?

Here is the structure.

Quote
The SCU is made up of three distinct groupings or levels. Members can 'graduate' from one level to the next by going through riti battesimali (baptismal rites). The religious symbolism is probably left over from the SCU's association with the Camorra.

The lowest level, the Società Minore, is made up of lower-level criminals who do street-level activities. Members start out as picciotti and go through a 40-day trial to ensure they are suitable for criminal work and are not associated with the police. They are then inducted into the next phase of the level, the manovalanza, or worker. The candidate must also swear an oath of devotion to SCU.

The second level, the Società Maggiore, is made up of two positions. The Lo Sgarro position is given only to members who have killed at least three people for SCU, and from now on members cannot leave, on pain of death. Members can now form their own crew of picciotti, known as a filiale. Upon indoctrination into the La Santa position the member is given a firearm (to symbolically use on oneself upon failing SCU), a cyanide pill, cotton (representing Monte Bianco, which is considered sacred), a lemon (treating the wounds of one's comrades), a needle to puncture the index finger of the right hand, handkerchiefs (representing purity of spirit) and a spartenza (a gift of some sort, usually cigarettes).[2]

The final level is the Società Segreta, the core of the organization where key decisions are made.

They have a presence in Holland where they are involved in drug trafficking via the world´s largest flower auction in Aalsmeer.

Look like most organized crime groups, with street level guys and people more important near the top

Look like the SCU is a spin off of the Camorra.

They are influenced by both Camorra and ´Ndrangheta. In recent years there were several meetings of the Calabrians also attended by representatives of the SCU.

The Ndrangheta was once influenced by LCN. At what point were they able to stand on their own two though?

As you said influenced, not controlled. Sure sicilian mafia was much more powerful than 'Ndrangheta , and sicilian bosses had huge influence over 'Ndrangheta , but Calabria was their territory, they were never controlled by sicilian mafia. And after Riina war with state and huge pressure from state/police, 'Ndrangheta used money from kidnappings to buy drugs and get into drug business, while everyone were focused on Sicilian mafia , they managed to grow almost silently.

It has always amazed me how many of the dons in Italy are so power driven yet the three mafia orginzations seem to be fairly amicable and do not intrude on one another’s territory as much as you would think.

I have heard that Calabria is like a mix of Sicily(in the south) and Naples(in the north). Not sure at what point on the map that starts.

The son of a Mafioso leaves the Ferrari at his first communion
A priest from Bari had an eventful day on Sunday. Two families linked to the mafia have made him see all the colors.


Big discomfort on the occasion of the first communion of a little Italian of 9 years, last Sunday in Bari (south). The child, son of a mafia boss currently in prison, was escorted to the front of the church in a red Ferrari convertible. His father had been banned from attending the ceremony. The spectacular arrival of the boy delighted his family members, shocked the audience and deeply shocked the priest, Don Antonio D'Angelo.

"I never thought anything like this could happen. All this is really absurd, "he indignantly said in the " Corriere del Mezzogiorno " . Don Francesco Preite, who works daily with troubled children and adolescents, shares the wrath of his colleague: "Such episodes are intolerable because they contrast with a deeper and more religious aspect. Other values ​​must be taught to our children, "he says.

The incredible arrival of the young boy was not the only event that made Don Antonio D'Angelo leap on that day. The family of another communicant, also related to local crime, had the idea to organize a thunderous and unauthorized fireworks show. "I felt like I was at the party of the patron saint of my country. They lasted so long, "laments the churchman. "How is it that no one at the police has heard the fireworks? They were strong and it lasted 5 or 6 minutes? ", An inhabitant annoyed.
