The Salieri crime family is a Mafia family in America, operating in Lost Heaven. The majority of the members were convicted to either prison or the electric chair after the famous testimonial participating by former soldato Thomas Angelo in 1938. The crime family is the organisation that the player works for during the majority of Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven.
The family was formed by Don Ennio Salieri in 1921 after the death of Don Peppone. Salieri and Morello split Lost Heaven into two territories with the Morello family based in eastern Lost Heaven and with the Salieri family based in Little Italy. The Salieris run several types of businesses such as protection and smuggling. The family's main base of operations is Salieri's Bar, which is located in Little Italy.
In 1930, the Morello crime family wanted to expand into Salieri's territory, which resulted in a war between the two families. The family suffered several losses between 1930 and 1935, but eventually won the mob war. Between 1936 and 1938, with no rival families or anyone else in their way, the Salieri family became the most powerful organisation in Lost Heaven. However, a bank heist was committed by Salieri soldiers Paulie and Thomas Angelo and Salieri discovered that Tommy let Michelle and consigliere Frank Colletti live. This betrayal angered Salieri and he ordered the family's caporegime Sam to kill the two and several others, as well as to hunt down former consigliere Frank in Europe and Michelle. Sam and his men succeeded in killing Paulie and ambushed Tommy at the Art Gallery in Central Island. However, Tommy killed Sam and several Salieri soldiers. He later testified against the Salieri family. The family's operations were brought down by the police and 80 soldiers were sentenced to either death row or the chair and Salieri was sentenced to life in prison.
After Don Salieri's incarceration, the family presumably rebuilt itself to its former glory. At the same time, they were trying to hunt down Tommy Angelo for breaking the family. At some point, they made friends with the families of Empire Bay. In 1951, after finding out Tommy was in Empire Bay, they asked the Falcone crime family to take care of the job by assassinating Tommy. Eddie Scarpa ordered soldati Vito Scaletta and Joe Barbaro to take care of it. They later shot him on his front lawn.
