Most of the rogue characters are based on the key players of the 30-Day Pope conspiracy during Pope John Paul I's brief reign. Kenzig the banker was based on Roberto Calvi, managing director of the Bank of Milan who was found hanged in London in June 19, 1982. He was accused by Italian authorities of being involved in the disappearance of Vatican funds amounting to $1.25 billion. Lucchesi was based on Giulio Andreotti, an Italian politician and former Prime Minister. Gilday was based on Paul Marcinkus, a one-time director of the Vatican Bank who to this day has remained silent about the conspiracy.

A Note Regarding Spoilers
The following FAQ entries may contain spoilers. Only the biggest ones (if any) will be covered with spoiler tags. Spoiler tags are used sparingly in order to make the page more readable.
Why did Coppola cast his daughter Sofia in the role of Mary?
Winona Ryder was originally cast in the role but ended up dropping out due to "exhaustion." Coppola didn't have time to go through the process of finding another actress who'd be available on such short notice. He had all confidence his daughter would be up to the challenge.
Who is Vincent Mancini's mother?
While Vincent does not exist in the novel, in the film, he is the illegitimate son of Sonny Corleone (James Caan) and his mistress Lucy Mancini (Jeannie Linero).
