FICTIONAL CHARACTER AND FROM A VIDEO GAME
Joe Vesuvius was a Barzini Family soldati.
A cool and calm businessman, Joe Veusvius is known for his relaxed attitude towards business, but is known to have a violent streak reserved for anyone who messes with his affairs at the Saint Elia Warehouse in Brooklyn. He runs an exotic car racket that ships from a container yard in south Brooklyn over to the Barzini Hub in Midtown. Vesuvius was known to have collaborated with the Tattaglia Family when they kidnapped Tom Hagen, which put him on the Corleone Family's enemy list. For this, he was muscled into giving the Corleones a cut of the action in 1951.
