Yeah but, Vercetti sounds very Italian.

 

Tommy Vercetti is Italian (as he was working for the Sindacco Family, a mafia family, and as everyone knows, the mafia are a band of Italians (apart from the Russian Mafia)).

 

Ray Liotta, while his name second name (Liotta) seems Italian, is American, if the information you gave us is true (didn't really care about knowing Tommy voice actor).

And Serbian Mafia, and Japanese Mafia, and Chinese Mafia, and Albanian Mafia, and every other Mafia except Italian Mafia is made out of non-Italians.

I reckon Vercetti is only half Italian - possibly on his father's side - and that when the Forellis discovered this it prevented Tommy from becoming a Made Man, thus leading to them needing to kill him rather than tell him he cannot be accepted into the family.

 

Plus, Tommy always shouts "Blame my mother - I do". biggrin.gif

But Tommy said that he was part of the family. Beside he spent only 15 years inside, which would be strange if he wasn't a made man. I believe he was full italian, but born in US.

Tommy was made, right? If so then he was full Italian. I played more of LCS than Vice, I'm not sure.

GTA Wikia reckons he's 3/4 Italian. I don't remember however any mention of his parents.

GTA Wiki is full of sh*t, most stuff that you didn't hear in the game and is mentioned in their articles is not based on evidence. Just look at all the bullsh*t it says about Tommy's parents, it's all made up.

Definitely Italian. People forget or simply don't know that Tommy used to work for the Forelli Crime Family back in Portland, Liberty City. He had just got out of prison for being the "Harwood Butcher" from the multiple murders he committed. Probably was a made man in the Forelli Crime Family, and seeing as you have to be full Italian to be an official member of an Italian crime family, he is/was definitely Italian.

He was just 20 years old when the Harwood slaughter happened. I doubt that he was a made man then...

Of course. I'm not saying that he was a made man during the Harwood Butcher incident. I meant that he probably was made right after he got out in '86' at the age of 36. I couldn't see Sonny Forelli sending someone as low as a 'family associate' down to Vice City to secure a million(s) dollar drug deal.

His main nationality is definitely Italian. One of the quotes Tommy sometimes says if you pick up a hooker is "I'm an Italian, do I get a special rate?" and there are one or two others similar to that.

If you need to use gta wiki better use this one:

 

http://grandtheftwiki.com/Main_Page

THEY ARE EXACT f*ckING COPIES!

 

please show me some articles that are different.

 

Anyway he's Italian, at least a good part. I don't really see why any more speculation needs to occur.

Example: GTA Wiki states that Asuka and Kenji Kasen are alive, but Grand Theft Wiki says they're dead. Shut up now.

Whatever the case "Vercetti" is an Italian name and I'm pretty sure of that because I myself am Italian. His name is also pronounced "Ver-Chetti" and that's that. Whether he was full Italian or half nobody knows but since we don't know anything else about his backround we have to asume he's Italian-American.

 

He also works for a Mafia family and seems closely affiliated with them even if he's not a made man which gives another clue that he's of Italian descent.

Haven't completed GTA III yet... thanks for the spoilers. /sarcasm

 

one example for a wiki related thing isn't enough, since it is edited by more people and more often than most other web pages.

Vercetti is pronounced ver-SHET-ee. The SH sound in Vercetti is very low so it does sound like ver-SET-ee.

Maybe in the part of America you come from, but in Italy it's pronounced "Ver-Chetti" alright, simple as. I was just making the point in the 1st place his Italian origin is all we know about him. It's Dumb morons who start making up things like "Ooo he looks more Hawaian so he can't be Italian!". dozingoff.gif

Actually, his name is pronounced as VerSetti.

Um, No it's not it's true pronounciation is pronounced "Ver-chetti".

 

"VerSetti" is just how Americans pronounce it.

 

If you don't beleive me look here, swtich both languages and you'll see.

Everyone in the story pronounces it Versetti, including some italians, so at least in gta it's VerSetti.
