Guappo (plural: guappi) is a word in Neapolitan language, meaning thug, bully, braggart. While today the word is often used to indicate a member of the Camorra, a Mafia-type organisation in the region of Campania and its capital Naples in Italy, the guapperia (or guapparia; i.e., the guappo culture) predates Camorra and was originally very different.
