Jonathan Johnny Trapani was a soldato of the Corleone family and son of a maternal uncle of Vito Corleone.


Serafina and Johnny

Johnny and Serafina Trapani.

Johnny Trapani was a baker from Little Italy and a made member under Peter Clemenza in the Corleone family from 1920 to 1936. He married Serafina in 1918, with whom he had a son, Aldo, in 1924.

Johnny was known to be incredibly loyal to Don Corleone and was highly favoured by him. The friendship lead to Johnny's family business, Trapani's Bakery, becoming very successful. His eldest brother Antonio, was also involved with the family, but after Johnny's death, he defected to the Cuneos.

This position led to Johnny's death however, when he was brutally murdered by Emilio Barzini's men Pietro Testa and a Barzini Capo before his son's eyes, for his part in sabotaging a number of the Barzini family's operations in 1936.

This event led to his wife Serafina's steady decline, and the straying of his son from the track of the law. However, Aldo was brought in to work for Luca Brasi, and eventually became one of Don Corleone's most trusted men. The bakery was sold to the Stracci family, who gave it to Mamma Scarponi. In 1945 it was re-acquired for the Corleones by Aldo Trapani, now under the tutelage of Luca Brasi.
