Marco Abiatti is a local politician who has always been considered a bad seed, but has managed to tap into the right-wing fanaticism that has swept Europe in the past few years.
The client, renowned bioengineer Silvio Caruso, sees Abiatti as a threat. Abiatti's overtly populist strategy is a cover for his plan to expel Sapienza's townspeople and make the town a luxury retreat for the rich and powerful.
Rome is backing him up, but he still needs the Church's approval. However, he also knows that a lawyer, Savatore Bravuomo, has information that could turn his election around for the worse.
Marco Abiatti is a paranoid man, bordering on sociopathic. He covers his tracks well, and the ICA is the final answer to stop this megalomaniac.
- Marco Abiatti's death was mentioned by Francesca De Santis, Oscar Lafayette, Dylan Narváez and several other NPCs in World of Tomorrow.
- According to Francesca De Santis, the real reason Silvio Caruso issued the contract was because Abiatti bullied him when they were in school. The hit was considered a political assassination by the public.
- In the briefing for Landslide, Diana Burnwood describes Abiatti as a "right-wing populist" and wealthy businessman. The character may be a parody of Silvio Berlusconi (also based in northern Italy) or, to a lesser extent, Donald Trump.
