La Squadra Esecuzioni/pt-br
La Squadra Esecuzioni (暗殺チーム Ansatsu Chīmu, lit. "A Equipe de Execução" em italiano), alternatively Equipe Assassina (
O grupo consiste apenas de usuários de Stand e serve como uma segunda força antagônica ao decorrer da quinta parte de JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, "Vento Aureo", enfrentando a Equipe Bucciarati em suas tentativas de tomar a Trish.
La Squadra Esecuzioni foi uma equipe de assassinos criada pela Passione e postos sobre a liderança de Risotto Nero. Seu cargo primário era garantir vários assassinatos benéficos a gangue. Os membros então receberiam um bônus por cada assassinato, mas nada além disso, por não terem confiança do resto da organização.
Team members Sorbet and Gelato decided to investigate the Boss' identity, as La Squadra wanted a portion of the money earned by the drug trafficking, which the boss kept for himself, which incurred his anger, and had them murdered. Gelato's corpse was discovered by La Squadra. The group later received Sorbet's body, cut up into 36 formalin frames.
Two months before the events of Vento Aureo, the death of Donatella Una triggered interest in her daughter Trish Una, as Donatella was the Boss' former lover. Risotto and his team then investigate Donatella's home and discover Trish's link with the Boss. Hoping to learn of him by using her and using her Stand as a detector for the Boss, Squadra Esecuzioni defected from Passione and scattered across Italy to track her down. Just after Trish was taken in by Pericolo, La Squadra Esecuzioni ransacked Donatella and Trish's appartment in search for clues, ironically missing a crucial photo of Donatella that was taken by the Boss himself.
Formaggio was the first to discover Trish's whereabouts, having noticed that Bucciarati's Squadra Guardie del corpo didn't attend Polpo's funeral despite him being their own direct capo. He tailed Narancia Ghirga and interrogated him, confirming his suspicion about Trish and a fight ensued, which ended in Formaggio's death. The fight is thought to have attracted the attention of every member of Squadra Esecuzioni toward Team Bucciarati and forced them to move Trish.
Illuso was the second to confront the group, fighting at once Giorno Giovanna, Pannacotta Fugo, and Leone Abbacchio in Pompeii in order to seize a key critical for Trish's transportation. Taking the three of them on, he came close to eliminating both Fugo and Abbacchio. However, Giorno's actions ultimately resulted in Illuso being killed by Purple Haze's virus.
The duo Prosciutto and Pesci then managed to track Team Bucciarati up to a train toward Florence, hiding in a turtle. Jeopardizing the lives of everyone on-board and nearly killing Guido Mista, they were killed at the hands of Bruno Bucciarati. However, the two ultimately managed to stop the train, hindering the group's movements. Before his death, Prosciutto also called fellow assassin Melone and informed him of the group's location.
Melone went up to the train, and using his Long-Ranged Stand, Baby Face, tracked the group and attempted to stealthily kidnap Trish Una, immediately defeating Bucciarati. However, Giorno Giovanna managed to stop Baby Face and sent a venomous snake after Melone, killing him before he could make more of his Stand from Bucciarati's DNA. During the fight, Melone had to call Ghiaccio and Risotto Nero for help; Ghiaccio was the first to arrive at the indicated location of the fight, but Team Bucciarati had already moved on.
It is revealed that Ghiaccio and Risotto managed to corner Pericolo, forcing him to commit suicide inside the turtle. From his burnt laptop Ghiaccio managed to extract a photograph of Venice, which enabled him to interrupt Giorno Giovanna and Guido Mista's search for a disk containing the Boss' final orders. The combined efforts of the two Stand users still overcame his powerful ice-controlling Stand White Album and might, and Ghiaccio died.
Meanwhile, Risotto Nero was investigating Sardinia to uncover the Boss' past directly. After Team Bucciarati defected from Passione themselves, Risotto eventually encountered Vinegar Doppio, who was the Boss' split personality and had arrived on the island to intercept them. He successfully determined his true identity and a fight ensued, as Bucciarati, Abbacchio, and Narancia were close by, guided to the island by Trish Una herself. While he had the upper hand against Doppio, the Boss' helping strategy shone through and baited Narancia's Aerosmith that had found them as enemies into attacking Risotto. The heavily wounded assassin had finally met the Boss, but only in defeat. Attempting to enact a final attack using Aerosmith's bullets, Diavolo's King Crimson rendered it useless, and Risotto was ultimately shot himself. Squadra Esecuzioni was no more.
- Enquanto o grupo foi introduzido como antagonistas diretos da primeira metade de Vento Aureo, a rebelião da Equipe Bucciarati contra a Passione pela segurança da Trish resultou em uma batalha entre três grupos separados durante a segunda metade.
- A adaptação do anime listou o endereço do esconderijo da equipe como Vico Pallonetto Santa Chiara, 8, 80134, Napoli NA.
