A biography on Pittsburgh mafioso Santino (Sandy Naples) DiNapoli.
Santino (Sandy Naples) DiNapoli – aka “Joseph Naples”, Giuseppe DiNapoli”, Joseph Sandy Naples”- was born in 1908 in Italy and immigrated to the U.S. as a child with his parents and siblings.
They soon settled in Youngstown, Ohio, where he would live the rest of his life. Santino was one of four brothers and three girls born to Giuseppe and Lucia DiNapoli. He was raised within the “Brier Hill” district, a largely Italian area he’d come to dominate into adulthood. As he later gained success, he moved to a home at 605 Carlotta Drive where he’d reside for years to come.
