Luciano Crapisi is born 28 November 1857 in his parents' home on via Borgognoni in Corleone and is baptized the next day, named after his maternal grandfather. He is the son of Pietro Crapisi and Antonia Birtone.[1] His godparents are Giovanni Riina and Biagia Ligotino, a married couple.[2]

Luciano marries Liboria di Palermo, daughter of Giovanni di Palermo and Angela Lisotta, on 12 September 1880. His mother has died by this time.[3]

Luciano and his wife, Liboria di Palermo, had five children.

Luciano owns an herd of cows, called " a retina," composed of 8 units, called: Bandiera, Cameriera, Bella Rosa, Vispisina, Crapuzza, PIttura, Signura. The worker man that works with this herd of cows is Gaetano Calì, called "Tanu Calì".

Luciano's name appears in a list of mafia leadership around 1900, compiled by Dino Paternostro.[4]

During the investigation of the murder of Bernardino Verro, he was accused of membership in the "Fratuzzi".
