Antonino is born and baptized 18 December 1808. Antonino's godparents are Luciano and Maria Jannazzo, a married couple.

Luciano and Maria's sons, Paolo and Biagio, will be part of the same as Bernardo and Antonino, associates of "the abductor," Giuseppe "Rapanzino" Castro.

Bernardo and Antonino's first cousin, Vincenzo Maida, is a soldier.

In police records, Antonino is described as having an oval face with pocks and a scar on his chin, "cerulean" blue eyes, short stature, "regular" physique, and chestnut hair.

By 1834, Rapanzino and at least one other associate are named as murderers by the governor, and may be killed by anyone with impunity.

The Church census, the stato delle anime, is usually compiled early in the year. In 1834, Giuseppe has died. His widow, Pietra Agata Palumbo, 60 (b. 1774), lives with her children Maria, 22 (b. 1812), Vincenzo, 17 (b. 1817), Bernardo, 32, and Antonio, 24, in the strada di Maestro Paolo Gallo. One of their close neighbors is Paolo Jannazzo.

Antonio does not marry.

Bernardo and Antonino are guillotined in Palermo in December 1835, according to eyewitnesses. However, their deaths are not recorded, and they may have escaped to Tunis.

Most of the Rapanzino gang escape justice that winter. On 17 March 1836, a bounty is placed on the lives of thirteen remaining members, including brothers Paolo and Biagio Jannazzo.

On 8 July 1836, Rapanzino and another band member, Leoluca Mondello, are killed. By this time, most of the bandits have been captured or killed.
