"Ken Rosenberg, schmuck of a lawyer. How's he gonna' hold Vercetti's leash?"
―Marco Forelli to Sonny Forelli

Marco Forelli is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a minor character in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


In 1986

He, and his brothers Sonny and Franco, along with Sonny's Right-Hand Man, appear during the beginning of the game discussing what to do about Tommy Vercetti now that he is out of prison. The three also discuss their plans for the family to "expand" down south and agree to have Vercetti be their representative. He doesn't appear again after this.

1986 - 1992

Marco takes over as don of the family after his brother, Sonny, was killed by Tommy Vercetti after he went to Vice City to confront him. It is under Marco's leadership that the Forelli family begins to decline, eventually losing their role as the most powerful mafia family in Liberty City to the Leone Family.

Events of GTA San Andreas

In 1992, Marco, as leader of the Forelli Family, agreed to a joint investment between his family, the Leones, and the Sindaccos in the Las Venturas luxury casino Caligula's Palace. They appoint Ken Rosenberg as the middle man, who would be killed if any problem rises between the families.

When the Four Dragons Casino opened, Johnny Sindacco, the leader of the Sindacco Family and a few other gangsters go and cause trouble there, while the others escape, Johnny is captured by Guppy and Carl Johnson attaches Johnny in the front of a Feltzer and drives in high speeds through the city of Las Venturas attempting to get information about his family. After the drive, Johnny was heavily scared and was admitted to a hospital. On the day he was supposed to get discharged, Marco Forelli sends a fake ambulance and picks up Johnny to kill him. Under the orders of Ken Rosenberg, Carl Johnson intercepts the ambulance and takes Johnny to the Sindacco Abattoir. After the death of Johnny, Salvatore Leone moves into Las Venturas. Marco Forelli sends 4 mafia hitmen to Las Venturas via a Shamal. Carl intercepts the plane and kills the Forellis and the pilot.
