The '''Gianellis''' are one of the three Mafia families operating in Seattle, UCAS. They are led by ''Don'' Joseph Gianelli.
The Gianellis used to be called "Bigios" but after the death of ''Don'' Maurice Bigio"Butcher" Bigio in 2070 control of the family was given to Joseph Gianelli who reorganized and renamed the family.
==Gianelli Family Atlanta==
There's also a Gianelli Family in Atlanta, CAS. It was led by ''Don'' Gerold Gianelli, who was very old in 2058, with his son Harold as likely heir and cousin Leonard as possible rival.
According to ''Runner Havens'' in 2070 the Gianellis operate in Seattle and their leader is Joseph Gianelli. But ''Underworld Sourcebook'' (set in 2058) places them in Atlanta, CAS, and names their ''Don'' as Gerold Gianelli. There is shadowtalk about Gerold being very old with his son Harold as likely heir and cousin Leonard as possible rival but there is no mention of a "Joseph".
Maybe Joseph is either Harold's or Leonard's son and has become ''Don'' after his father's death and has moved the family to Seattle where they absorbed the Bigios.
Or maybe there are ''two'' Gianelli families - the "original" in Atlanta, led by Harold or Leonard, and a "spin-off" in Seattle led by Joseph.
