Nicolo' Ciavarello is born around 1811 in Corleone, the son of Gaetano Ciavarello and Marianna d’Anna, who married in 1807. He is named after his maternal grandfather.

Gaetano, reportedly 55 (he is actually 58, born in 1776), Marianna, 53 (b. 1781), and their children Giacomo, 26 (b. 1808), Nicolo’, 23 (b. 1811), Maddalena, 15 (b. 1819), Onofria (she is listed as "Onufrio," a son), 13 (b. 1821), and Bernardo, 10 (b. 1824), appear in the 1834 census, between the San Nicolo’ quarter and the hospital.[1]

On 9 September 1833, a bounty is set for the capture or killing of Giuseppe Castro, called "Rapanzino," ("cropper" or "abductor") and Nicolo' Ciavarello, called "Puntillo," ("stubbornness") both of Corleone.[2]

The bounty for Rapanzino is renewed 24 April 1834. [2]

Nicolo’ Ciavarello, alias Puntillo, age 30 (b. 1806), son of the living Gaetano Ciavarello and the late Marianna d’Anna, is killed, 8 June 1836, according to the Church record in Corleone.[3] The police records place his execution a month later. Rapanzino is killed, reportedly at age 27 (he is 28) on 8 July 1836. The same day, Leoluca Mondello, age 28, is also found killed.[4]

After the destruction of the band and the killing of the band’s leadership and most of its members, Salvatore Blanda and Nicolo' Ciavarello rob and kill Rosa Liga, in a little house in the hills (“Colli”), on 14 July.[2]

That day, Salvatore Blanda and Nicolo' "Puntillo" Ciavarello are killed, according to the police record.[2]

On 27 June 1836, Captain “Don” Gioacchino Campione leads a temporary armed company after Puntillo’s gang. Three of their gang are captured, most of the rest are killed.[2]
