Biography Edit

Giotti was born in Miami, Florida, to Italian immigrants who came from Marsala. He had a run-in with the law in 1946, failing to rob a bank. He escaped the police in a long firefight, in which he lost two of his accomplices and his eye, gaining the nickname "eyeball". Giotti was recruited by Tony Rosato, a mob boss from NYC, and became a Capo and Consigliere in his organization, presiding over the family's territory in Flamingo. He hung out at the Corman Drive-In Theater, where he purchased bodyguards to defend him while he laid low. However, Sergio Garces, a Cuban-American citizen of Miami, turned him in as a favor to Dominic, an enemy of the Rosato Brothers, revealing his location. Dominic killed his five bodyguards before throwing him off of a balcony in the field near the theater. His death caused the collapse of the Tony Rosato family's power structure in Flamingo, which fell as a result of his murder.
