Putanesca is one of the minor families of the vampiric clan Giovanni. The Putanesca's very name translates as "of the whore", they are a Sicilian family of low-rent criminals, pimps and thugs with ties to the mafia that the Giovanni acquired in the 1660’s to do the family's "dirty work". The average Putanesca has a temper that would even put a Brujah to shame. Not the type to forgive and forget, these guys are real big on the concept of vendetta and are usually employed by the clan as leverage against enemies.
