About Giuseppe Morello

  • Giuseppe "the Clutch Hand" Morello (Italian: [d?u'z?ppe mo'r?llo]; May 2, 1867 – August 15, 1930), also known as "The Old Fox", was the first boss of the Morello crime family and later top adviser to Giuseppe "Joe the Boss" Masseria.
  • He was known as Piddu (Sicilian diminutive form of Giuseppe) and his rivals the Castellammarese knew him as Peter Morello.
  • He was famous for having a one-fingered deformed right hand that resembled a claw. In the 1890s, Giuseppe founded a gang known as the 107th Street Mob, which would later evolve into the Morello crime family.
  • Today the Morello crime family is known as the Genovese crime family and is the oldest of the Five Families in New York City.
