The purpose of this investigation is to analyse “the social and cultural reasons the peasant class viewed Giuliano as a “heroic outlaw” while the upper class viewed him as a criminal”. In order to evaluate this question, I will analyse his actions towards the peasants and upper class as well as the culture of Sicily during the 1940’s in order to develop an understanding of the political and cultural relationship between Giuliano and the social classes. Once this information is obtained, I will compare it to my understanding of the situation and evaluate the social and cultural values of the upper class and the peasant class which contributed to their negative and positive views of Salvatore Giuliano respectively.
