- ―Luigi Goterelli
Luigi Goterelli is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a main character in Grand Theft Auto III. He is also referenced in The Introduction, a prequel to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (set in 1992), and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories (set in 1998), with the appearance of his business part way through the game. Luigi is voiced by Joe Pantoliano, who has starred in such programs as The Sopranos.
Luigi Goterelli became an associate of the Leone Family, which allowed him to eventually open his own business, Luigi's Sex Club 7 in the Red Light District of Portland Island. The club is seen during The Introduction, a prequel to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, showing the business had started sometime before that point in 1992. The death of Forelli Family Don Sonny Forelli, however, cleared the way for the Sindacco Family to enter the city and the family took the Red Light District over, renaming the building Paulie's Revue Bar. In 1998 Toni Cipriani and other Leone Family mobsters took control of the area from the Sindacco Family and the Diablos in a gang war. Shortly after this, the building is changed back to Luigi's Sex Club 7. Goterelli had stood trial for running a brothel and profiting from immoral activity thrice in the past, but was protected from getting charged by Salvatore and Joey Leone.
