Not a great deal of information is available about his early life except that he came from a long line of Mafiosi. His family, the Greco Mafia family, were prominent Mafiosi (he was a distant relative of Salvatore Greco) and he is believed to have joined the Mafia sometime in the late 1970s. His father was also a Mafiosi nicknamed Scarpa, Sicilian for "Shoe", hence Giuseppe's nickname of Scarpuzzedda; "Little Old Shoe".
