- "Nobody who hangs out with family men is innocent."
- ―Bobby Marcolini[src]
A Cuneo soldier under Ronnie Tosca, Marcolini was known to be a violent man who often took out hits against non-combatants. He was also known to give out loans to merchants who couldn't afford to pay them off, merely so he could intimidate and bully them until they paid off, or until his own family had to call him off. Tosca was constantly having to reprimand Marcolini for his activities, but realised he could be a valuable asset during the Five Families War.
- "He mixed his personal affairs with business, and now one of my guys is dead. Make it look like an accident, no bullets in the body, kid."
- ―Peter Clemenza orders the death of Bobby Marcolini.[src]In 1948, Marcolini attacked one of Peter Clemenza's associates, in a personal attack, which angered the old caporegime. At this time he also began extorting businesses across Little Italy in order to weaken the Corleones.
Marcolini was found beating up Moose T. Gamille, one of his debtors, when he was thrown off a bridge by Aldo Trapani, acting under Clemenza's orders. The Cuneo family were summarily whittled down by Clemenza and Trapani, signaling the beginning of their end. The hit had not been sanctioned by the family, but they were secretly pleased with the turn of events that followed.
Marcolini was a tough target despite his rank and he is actually as tough as Oscar Zavarelle from the Stracci clan. He was also one of the reason why Cuneo is an odd family as he is the only Soldier to be guarded by two Underbosses. Another danger coming from Marcolini is when you approach him, he will run to the duct below and his guards will react, as the pathway is narrow their attacks are more accurate so be quick with your attack but Marcolini's bonus can make the battle end fast and easily so make sure to get it.
Players (Peter Clemenza Hit 1):
Peter Clemenza - Clemenza has a number of contracts that he can't trust others to handle: a mixture of personal vendettas and odd takedowns involving more deranged gangsters. He hopes you can handle these orders.
Bobby Marcolini - Marcolini's one of the more ruthless members of the Cuneo Crime Family, and his uncaring attitude has finally caught up with him. Worried about an attempt on his life, he has a number of bodyguards around him at all times.
Moose T. Gamille - The proprietor of the Global Trading Company (ID 282) over in Little Italy, Moose seems to have offended Marcolini. Perhaps it's affiliation to the Tattaglia Family. Whatever the reason, he's being severely beaten.
