While out in the countryside, Clemenza asked Paulie to pull over so he could “take a leak”. While he was doing so, Rocco executed Paulie with three shots to the head.

When she started the car to drive towards him, she unknowingly ignited a bomb planted in the car, intended for Michael, the subsequent explosion killed her instantly. The attack was orchestrated by Michael’s trusted bodyguard, Fabrizio , who was paid off by the Barzini family from New York.
He is the son of Italian -American parents Rose Gerardi and Salvatore Pacino . His parents divorced when he was two years old. He then moved with his mother to the Bronx to live with her parents, Kate and James Gerardi, who were Italian immigrants from Corleone, Sicily.
