Giovanni Chronicles IV: Nuova Malattia is the fourth and final installation of the Giovanni Chronicles. Taking place in Boston, it focuses on the activities of the Giovanni clan, specifically a coterie of their ghouls, as they rise to power and face off against the Children of Isaac.

A synopsis of the new installment with tips for storytellers.
Act One: First Communion
Act Two: The Blood of Her Enemies
The story jumps ahead to 1959, when the player characters face a new gang war and the appearance of the Children of Isaac.
Act Three: Test of Faith
Act Four: To Everyone Who Conquers
By 1999 the player characters are struggling against both the Giovanni and the Children of Isaac, who claim they are acting against an even greater threat.
Appendix: Boston Highlights
Unlike the previous Giovanni Chronicles books, the player characters of Nuova Malattia are not the Children of Isaac. The reasoning given in the introduction is that the Children of Isaac should now be powerful elders, and thus more inclined to behind-the-scenes manipulation rather than direct action.
