How did Prosciutto come to be chosen as Risotto’s second in command?
It was more than just the fact that it was a convenient option when Risotto was first assigned Sorbet, Gelato, and Prosciutto to work with. The recently-promoted Capo immediately saw potential in him - both stand and person.
Risotto is definitely no stranger to finding unique and creative ways to use his stand. Think about it: At the surface, Metallica controls metal. That already supplies a lot of obvious and powerful options for attack. But Risotto took things further and zeroed in on the most precise, deadly, and terrifying way to use his stand. Not only that, he did even more to experiment with his abilities and found a way to use his stand as a cloaking device. He covers sheer power, precision, and defense very well instead of just sticking to messing with metal in the area.
Back to Prosciutto-
By no means did he lack confidence, but he had some doubts about how well his stand could be used for assassination. But Prosciutto was determined to better himself, and by teaming up and training with Risotto he was able to refine quite a few strategies.
Recognized imperfection alongside a drive for improvement was what impressed Risotto. From the Prosciutto was not only able to admit his own faults, but he was also a responsible man at his core. He possessed a charisma that Risotto lacked as well - That made him a perfect person to carry his orders and communicate with the rest of the group.
To this day Risotto is confident in his choice. Had Prosciutto not fit the role, he could have easily been replaced with someone else. But their duo of command is one of the best in Passione, and the friendship that has developed between them helps to maintain La Squadra’s strong dynamic of brotherhood.
