Mario Abiatti is the a Special Assignment Misson target of HITMAN (2016), and the main antagonist in the Special Assignment Mission "Landslide" .
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.
After returning back to the town and participating its mayor election, Abiatti secretly planned overtly populist strategy, which is a cover for his plan to expel Sapienza's townspeople and make the town a luxury retreat for the rich and powerful.
The client of Abiatti's assassination, renowned bioengineer Silvio Caruso, sees Abiatti as a threat. However, according to Francesca De Santis, the real reason Caruso ordered a hit on Abiatti was for vengeance, because Abiatti was one of the bullies that abused him.
Marco Abiatti is an arrogant, greedy and paranoid man, bordering on sociopathic. He covers his tracks well, and the ICA is the final answer to stop this megalomaniac. He was also revealed to be a bully to Silvio Caruso and Father Franchesco, with the former ordered a hit on him for vengeance, and the latter was horrified and tried to avoid when he returned back to the town.
- His assassination was ordered by Silvio Caruso, who was mentioned in his briefing as a former client of ICA by Diana Burnwood, and the assassination was already referred in "World of Tomorrow" mission.
- He could potentially eliminate Father Franchesco should they both crossed paths.
- 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.
- Abiatti's deaths are noticeably more violent than most other targets, with the only comparable one being Soders (who was a traitor and a turncoat.) This could be because of 47's respect for religious figures and hatred of those who harm any member of the clergy.
