La Banda della Comasina (Band of Comasina) is the name which the Italian media used to describe a criminal group active in the 1970s in robberies, kidnappings, drug trafficking and weapons in the northern area of Milan: the Comasina. The area of action included the control of entire neighborhoods in Milan, with the presence of roadblocks out any well-circumscribed, consisting of members and in which policemen were robbed and maligned.

Controlled by Bergamo.

The group's most famous criminal action is the seizure of Manuela Trapani, age 16, who was daughter of a businessman from Milan. The history of the Banda della Comasina is shown in the book Il fiore del male (The Flower of Evil), written by Renato Vallanzasca.[1]
