Canio Silvestro was a Corporal in the Sicilian army.


Becoming a corporal in the army in the late Forties, Silvestro was assigned to the barracks at Bellampo, which is where he first encountered Salvatore Giuliano, who spared him whilst freeing a number of captives, including Terranova and Passatempo.

For his failure at Bellampo, Silvestro was disgraced by the military and sought to join Giuliano's band. Whilst the bandit was initially suspicious, he agreed after the former Corporal informed them that Frisella, the local barber, was actually an informant.
