Nicola Napolitano (February 28, 1838 - September 10, 1863), also known by the nickname Caprariello, a nickname derived from his activity of goats shepherd, was born in Nolamarker from the peasants Sabato and Carmela from Naplesmarker. Illiterate, having never attended any school, he was recruited in 1861 in the military service established by the newborn Regno d'Italia, then known as Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.

Disobedient, he was arrested and forced to attend military service, but deserted almost immediately, joining the brigands led by the La Gala brothers from Nolamarker, where he soon played an important role, gaining reputation for his fierceness and strength, to the point of being able to put together and leading his own brigand band during 1862.

Arrested after a shooting fight at the beginning of September 1863, he was executed by shooting in his birth city, Nolamarker, in the 10th of that same month.
