GTA Liberty City Stories also reveals a [[Little Italy]] district in Liberty City called [[Fort Staunton]] that served as the main base of the Forellis' operations.

The [[Uptown Yardies]], a Jamaican gang, are moving to [[The Whole 9 Yardies|take over the district]] [[Newport]], which is Forelli territory.

History

1971

Forelli Family associate Tommy Vercetti kills eleven men in Harwood, Liberty City earning him 15 years in prison and the nickname "The Harwood Butcher"

1984

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Giorgio Forelli attempts to kill Phil Collins due to Barry Mickelthwaite owing Giorgio Forelli money. Victor Vance kills all the hitmen squads sent therefore saving both Phil and Barry from dying.

1986

In Vice City, the Forellis had decided to expand "down south" by opening relations with local drug cartels through recently released from prison Tommy Vercetti. However, this never happened due to Sonny Forelli's death and Tommy's defection.

1992

In San Andreas, it was agreed the Forellis would own an equal share of Caligula's Palace casino in Las Venturas, along with the Sindacco and Leone families. The Families couldn't decide between themselves who should run the casino. Therefore, Ken Rosenberg was put forward as a neutral party, which any war between the families ignite, Rosenberg will be killed.

While Johnny Sindacco is at the hospital for being traumatized, the Forellis decide to take the moment to kill him, by hijacking his ambulance. Rosenberg becomes aware of the hit, and sends Carl Johnson to retrieve Johnny's ambulance before a war is ignited between the families. However, Johnny later dies from an induced heart attack, and Salvatore Leone returns to Las Ventruas to reclaim the money that he invested in the casino from Rosenberg. The Forellis later send hitman to kill Salvatore, who was aware of the hit and decides to send Carl to kill the hitmen in their flight before they arrive in Las Ventruas. The hit leads to Salvatore to finish the Forellis by sending Carl to Liberty City, to kill the Forellis underboss Marco Forelli, while at the Marco's Bistro. The hit weakens the Forellis, and ends their occupation in Las Ventruas, leaving the Leones to take full control of the casino.

1998

In Liberty City Stories, the Forellis deal with the death of Mayor Roger C. Hole who was working for Franco Forelli at the time and then had found another representative Miles O'Donovan to go against Donald Love, who was representative with the Leone's. However, O'Donovan wins as the voters found out that Love was unfit for office because he was working with Toni Cipriani.

Later on a war was sparked between the Forellis and the Sindaccos in Fort Staunton, which was caused by the Sicilian Mob, after the Sindacco's had begun invading Forelli territory on Staunton Island. Toni is caught up in it, as Salvatore Leone takes advantage of the war to foil Massimo Torini's plan to take over the city. The war leads to both families to be weakened as upcoming gangs the Uptown Yardies and the Yakuza take over their territory left behind. The families eventually realize the Sicilians are behind the war, and decide to broker a truce to which Salvatore bug's Paulie Sindacco's car to kill the Forellis attending the peace meeting. As the war continues the Forellis continue to lose territory on Shoreside Vale, after Toni Cipriani and the Southside Hoods take over the last expanding turf the Forellis have occupation in. The war continues until Paulie Sindacco was killed after trying to flee Liberty City, after his invlovment in putting Salvatore in jail.

The Forellis later target the Yakuza, after Kazuki Kasen had taken over all the territory in Liberty City and began stocking up on weapons such as a Tank. The Forellis catch Kazuki's wife Toshiko Kasen attending the Fort Staunton Opera House with Toni Cipriani, and attempt to kill her (but not knowing that Toshiko is against her huspand's plots). The Forellis are later completly weakned after their main base of operations Fort Staunton, was destroyed by underground explosive's in the old subway main line running throught south Staunton Island. It was believed the Forellis don Franco was killed in the explosion.

2001

In GTA III, the Forellis seems to have been weakened considerably, with the killing of several more Forelli members. It is assumed that the Forellis have been reduced to servitude under the Leone Family and their organization on the whole is now considered a brotherhood.

A high-ranking member Mike Forelli, was killed in a car explosion that was set by Claude, on orders from Joey Leone, who the Forellis owed money to at the time. Bad blood between Joey and the Forelli brothers continue, to which Joey had another Forelli killed and stuffed in a car. Due to the Forelli surveillance around the car, sent Claude to dispose of it at the Car Crusher.

Other

In GTA Liberty City Stories, Forelli henchmen don blue/dark red shirts with light blue/white jackets over and carry pistols. In GTA III, they dressed like the Leones as seen in one of Joey Leone's missions, although this is because they were in disguise. In GTA Vice City, the Forelli's are seen wearing light blue or brown Hawaiian shirts. In GTA San Andreas, the mobsters (presumed to be the Forelli's) either dress in brown jackets, light green shirts with black pants or black jogging suits. In GTA Vice City Stories, the Forelli hitman seen in a couple of missions wear dark colored shirts with black jackets over. The Forelli family are the only gang to have appeared in every GTA III-canon game.
