- "Okay it's yours - I just hope you know what you're getting into."
- ―Johnny Donatello[src]
Donatello was also one of Santino Stracci's gold distributors, who managed to secretly take over the ramshackle Italia Warehouse without alerting the rival families. It is largely down to his success that the Stracci gold racket in Little Italy is working effectively.
In 1947, Donatello began to steel himself for the inevitable discovery of his racket, but he was unprepared for the attack from the Corleone family, who raided his warehouse and bought him out. They also made good on their protection, saving him from the wrath of his former caporegime Leon Grossi and his men.
