Vento Aureo (黄金の風 Ōgon no Kaze?) (lit. "Golden Wind") is the fifth part of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, published in Weekly Shonen Jump between 1996 and 1999.

The story follows Giorno Giovanna in his ambition to rise within the Neapolitan mafia by subverting dominant gang Passione.

Plot Summary Edit

Giorno Giovanna wants to become a gangster in order to fulfill his dream: becoming a "Gangstar" (Gangster Star). After killing Leaky-Eye Luca, Giorno is encountered by Bruno Buccellati, who wants to make him pay for killing Luca. However Giorno exceeds Bruno's expectations and defeats him. After this Bruno offers him a chance to join his mafia group, Passione, by completing a test imposed by Polpo.

After becoming a member of the group Giorno meets his comrades, Narancia, Mista, Abbacchio and Fugo, who despise him at first but eventually learn to appreciate him as the story develops. Giorno and his comrades are assigned a mission by the boss of their group himself: protect his daughter, Trish Una, and deliver her to him before an enemy group can abduct her.

Main article: GioGio's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Whirlwind

Vento Aureo has been condensed and adapted as a Japan-only action-adventure video game for the PlayStation 2, GioGio's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Whirlwind.


  • This arc was initially referred to as Dai Go-bun Giorno Giovana: Ōgon naru Isan (第5部 ジョルノ・ジョバァーナ ―黄金なる遺産― Dai Go Bu Joruno Jobāana Ōgon naru Isan?), lit. "Part 5 Giorno Giovana: Golden Heritage".
  • Since the arc takes place in Italy, the series title is written in Italian as Le Bizzarre Avventure di GioGio.
  • Araki said that he used male idol groups and Italian fashion as the visual inspirations for this part. He wanted to design the main cast in a "pretty boy image" to deliberately contrast the taller, muscular protagonists from previous arcs. Araki remarked that the gay undertones found within certain scenes were included as a homage to the eroticism generally found within the fashion industry. He didn't think that events or character relationships had any deeper meanings behind them until fans brought it to his attention.[1]
