- "Don't mess with me, if you know it's good for ya!"
- ―Pietro to Trapani
Pietro Testa was Barzini family's senior caporegime and most trusted caporegime, and Consigliere of Mariposa crime family. In 1936 he, along with a Barzini Capo was tasked with murdering Corleone Soldato Johnny Trapani.
Murder of Johnny Trapani
In early 1936, Pietro and a capo blew up Johnny Trapani's bakery in Little Italy. In the ensuing chaos, a group of Barzini hitmen grabbed Corleone Soldato Johnny Trapani and dragged him into the back alley. Despite being outnumbered, Trapani managed to fend them off but was cornered upon exiting the alley by the two capos and their boss Emilio Barzini himself. Knowing it was futile to attempt an escape, Trapani stood still while the capos riddled him with Tommy Gun bullets.
After the execution, Johnny's twelve year-old son Aldo stumbled upon his body alongside Vito Corleone and a group of bystanders. Vito Corleone stopped the young boy from seeing his father's corpse, and promised that when the time was right, he could take his revenge.
Pietro's Regime included the soldatos like easy-going dock boss Joe Vesuvius who based his operations in Brooklyn, Don Barzini's own nephew, Eduardo aka Deadly Ed, who was charged with managing the Barzini Hub and Simon Finch, who managed the Palermo Warehouse and was former enforcer for the Barzinis, kind of like Luca Brasi for the Corleones.
In 1956 Aldo, now a full grown man and made man in the Corleone family, was tasked by Al Neri to assassinate Testa. He was causing trouble by making a deal with the Little Italy Police Chief, and therefore turning the police force against the Corleones.
Aldo arrived at the meeting, which took place under an overpass in Little Italy. After watching over the meet for a few minutes, he waited until Testa and the chief shook hands, then shot Testa in the head, killing him instantly.
Behind the scenes
- He was portrayed by Gavin Hammon.
Players (Al Neri Hit 3):
Testa is a smartly dressed capo from the most-powerful Barzini Family, and his meeting with the chief of police is troubling. Testa could be a key in the resurgence of his Family. Make sure he can't have an open coffin at his funeral.
Testa is a strong foe, as he is a hit target and Capo of Barzini family. However, his bonus condition actually makes the hit very easy as you will only need to do a headshot to fulfill it but the timing maybe making the hit a bit difficult. Still, as they shake has for some time, it gives you enough time to do the bonus condition and Snub Nose maybe the most helpful weapon to finish the job.
