== Description ==
+
'''Massimo Torini''' is a character in the ''[[Grand Theft Auto]]'' series, appearing as a central character and the main [[antagonist]] of ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]''.
   
Torini travels to [[Liberty City in GTA III Era|Liberty City]] after learning that [[Salvatore Leone]] was "out of control" after his return from [[Las Venturas]]. Although Torini claims that he is arriving to ease tensions between the [[Leone Family]], the [[Forelli Family]], and the [[Sindacco Family]], he actually has ulterior motives in mind: he intends to take over the criminal empire in Liberty City by having the three families destroy each other and moving the Sicilians in once the dust has eventually settled.
+
A high-ranking member of the [[Sicilian Mafia]], Torini is sent by his superiors under the supposed orders of making a truce between the three mob families of [[Liberty City (3D Universe)|Liberty City]]: the [[Leone crime family|Leones]], the [[Forelli crime family|Forellis]], and the [[Sindacco crime family|Sindaccos]].

Massimo Torini is voiced by [[Duccio Faggella]].
   
He begins his mission by [[Calm Before the Storm|convincing gangs]] like the [[Diablos]] and [[Portland Island Triads|Triads]] to expand their turf into [[Mafia]] territory, which would strain the manpower of the three Families, who are already fighting with each other. Although [[Toni Cipriani]] is successful in defending [[Hepburn Heights]] from a Diablo assault, he mentions that the Leones would be unable to keep defending the territory from future onslaughts. Indeed, in the later-set [[Grand Theft Auto III]], Hepburn Heights belongs to the Diablos.

==History==
  +
===Background===
  +
Originating from the [[Italy|Italian]]-owned island of Sicily, Massimo Torini joined and became a powerful and high-ranking member of the [[Sicilian Mafia]] by the late 1990's, under the rule of [[Salvatore Leone]]'s [[Uncle Leone|elderly uncle]]. It's been said that when he was younger he would often kill men with his [[Fist|bare hands]]. By the year of [[1998]], Torini also became the owner of a hotel located outside the city of Palermo, Sicily.
   
Torini's motives are eventually discovered by Toni and Salvatore, but they keep quiet so the Forellis and Sindaccos will wipe each other out. Salvatore is eventually jailed by federal agents, but when it is heard that he will have bail, Torini orders an attack on the convoy transporting the Don from prison to court, hoping to permanently cripple Salvatore's organization. Toni thwarts this, and later on, it seems that newly elected Mayor [[Miles O'Donovan]] will drop the charges on Salvatore altogether. To make sure this does not happen, Torini kidnaps O'Donovan. Toni and Salvatore [[The Sicilian Gambit|pursue Torini and fight their way]] through his Sicilian henchmen, eventually rescuing the mayor. Toni shoots down the fleeing Torini's helicopter, killing him. Torini's fate is liken to that of [[Catalina]], who, by the end of GTA III's storyline, kidnaps [[Maria Latore|Maria]], flees to an isolated location with the kidnap victim, and is killed when the helicopter she rides in is shot down by Claude. Torini is revealed to be the underboss for the [[Sicilian Mafia]], and that his leader is Salvatore's unnamed, elderly uncle.

By 1998, Massimo and his superiors have learnt that Salvatore Leone - [[Don]] of the Leone crime family - was "out of control" when he returned to Liberty City after a visit to [[Las Venturas (3D Universe)|Las Venturas]] in [[1992]].

Under Torini's influence, the Diablos wage a gang war against the Leones in Hepburn Heights, as well as the [[Red Light District]], with the Leones successfully [[Sindacco Sabotage|defending]] their turf. The Triads - presumably under Sicilan influence as well - [[The Trouble With Triads|blow up]] a Leone-owned warehouse at [[Callahan Point]].

While Salvatore's detainment initially seems to weaken the Leones and strengthen the Sicilians, he keeps sending his man Toni Cipriani into missions involving defeating the other mafia families. When Salvatore gets released from jail, Torini attempts to assassinate him, sending his men after a [[Securicar]] containing the Leone Don; however, this attempt is foiled by Toni, who fends off the hitmen.

HistoryEdit

BackgroundEdit

Originating from the Italian-owned island of Sicily, Massimo Torini joined and became a powerful and high-ranking member of the Sicilian Mafia by the late 1990's, under the rule of Salvatore Leone's elderly uncle. It's been said that when he was younger he would often kill men with his bare hands. By the year of 1998, Torini also became the owner of a hotel located outside the city of Palermo, Sicily.

Events of GTA Liberty City StoriesEdit

Arrival in Liberty CityEdit

"...So quei bastardi dei Leone tied down in Portland, and when my associates control this city, you'll be taken care of. Si pensiamo noi."
―Torini in a meeting with the Triads.

By 1998, Massimo and his superiors have learnt that Salvatore Leone - Don of the Leone crime family - was "out of control" when he returned to Liberty City after a visit to Las Venturas in 1992. Seeing this as an opportunity to take over Liberty City's underworld, Massimo is sent by his bosses under the guise of "bringing peace" between the three major Mafia families of the city, while in reality the Sicilians aim to manipulate the families into destroying each other.

Torini meeting with the Diablos.

Salvatore eventually learns of Massimo's incoming arrival in Liberty City, and correctly suspects that the Sicilians attempt to take over the city. First visiting Hepburn Heights, Torini meets up with members of the Spanish Diablos street gang, who ally themselves with the Sicilians in exchange of gaining aid in taking over Hepburn Heights.

Shortly afterwards, Torini meets up with members of the local Triad gang in Chinatown, Portland, striking a similar deal with them as he did with the Diablos. At that moment, the Triads spot Leone member Toni Cipriani spying on the meeting; Torini flees the area while the Triads unsuccessfully attempt to eliminate Toni.

Under Torini's influence, the Diablos wage a gang war against the Leones in Hepburn Heights, as well as the Red Light District, with the Leones successfully defending their turf. The Triads - presumably under Sicilan influence as well - blow up a Leone-owned warehouse at Callahan Point. Around the same time, the Leones, Forelli and Sindaccos continue warring for control over the city, as planned by Torini.

Confrontation with Leone and deathEdit

Salvatore: "Torini... It figures. Give him up! The mayor is mine! THIS CITY IS MINE!"
Torini: "Salvatore... Sicily never wanted questo schifo di citta. But when tribute dried up, what could we do...? It was nothing personal."
Salvatore: "Nothing personal? After what you've put me through! I'm gonna tear your fuckin' heart out!"
—Salvatore confronts Torini.

Salvatore is eventually arrested under orders of the newly-elected, Forelli-influenced mayor Miles O'Donovan, who was elected after the Sicilans presented evidence of fellow mayorship candidate Donald Love's ties with the Leones. While Salvatore's detainment initially seems to weaken the Leones and strengthen the Sicilians, he keeps sending his man Toni Cipriani into missions involving defeating the other mafia families. When Salvatore gets released from jail, Torini attempts to assassinate him, sending his men after a Securicar containing the Leone Don; however, this attempt is foiled by Toni, who fends off the hitmen.

Ultimately, with the Forellis crippled and the Sindaccos gone, Torini attempts to make peace with the Leones, but Salvatore declines the offer as he wants peace only by his terms. Torini then kidnaps O'Donovan, and finds himself confronted by Salvatore and Toni next to Portland Rock's lighthouse. Torini tries to justify the Sicilians' actions as "nothing personal," but Salvatore threatens to kill him. Enraged, Torini attempts to escape and attacks back on his Maverick, but Toni destroys it, killing him and his men.

After Torini's death, the Leones and the Sicilians make a truce, with the Sicilian Don, Salvatore's uncle, concedes defeat and returns back to Sicily.
