Green Peroni Bottles?
Does it make a difference between green or brown bottles besides it seems harder to cap the peroni bottles?

Green lets more light in. light=bad for beer

Brown bottles are preferred since they block a higher amount of light which can lead to skunky beer.

Peroni bottles are hard to cap. If you look at them from the side they have a double lip on them that makes them hard to cap. I don't use them for that reason. Look at them side by side with other bottles and you will see the difference.

I noticed once I started capping but I made it work Im gonna have to put away like 30 sammys in the next 2 weeks so I have better bottles!

I have beer in brown bottles, green bottles, blue bottles, and even clear bottles. It doesn't matter as long as you keep them out of the sunlight or the light from florescent bulbs as the UV light causes a reaction with the hop oils that will turn beer skunky.
