Biography

Gaetano Governali is born around 1790 in Corleone, the son of Don Giuseppe Governali and Marianna Pinzarrone.[1]

Maestro Gaetano marries Rosa Lipari, daughter of Maestro Gaetano Lipari and Antonina Ragusa, on 17 January 1814.[2]

Gaetano and Rosa have at least one child, Giuseppe (c. 1818).

Maestro Gaetano remarries to Arcangela Bacchi on 5 March 1832. Don Giuseppe has died by this time.[3]

Death of Gaetano

In Don Colletto's history of Corleone, he writes that at the height of the cholera epidemic, rumors of poison raced through the town, and on 21 July a mob took four men: Leone lo Bue, Gaetano Governali and his son Giuseppe, and Ciro Boscarelli. They dragged the victims to the Gatto bridge, brutally beat them, and shot them to death with rifles. The main aggressors in the crowd were Giuseppe Catalinotto aka Catinotto Moscoglione, Liborio Perricone, Leoluca Milone, Simone Majuri aka Simone Maione, and Benedetto Glorietti aka Benedetto di Mitri: all but the last, natives of Corleone.[4]

Catalinotto, Pirricone, Milone, Majuri, and di Mitri are all executed on 2 August.[5]

According to the Church record of his death, Maestro Gaetano is killed at age 47 (b. 1790) on 21 July 1837. His second wife survives him.[6] His son, Giuseppe, is 19.[7]
