Pizzillo Family

Collesano, Sicily

Rosaria Pizzillo, my great great grandmother, descended from a family with deep roots in Collesano, Sicily. The Pizzillos made a name as master craftsmen in the art of ceramics. Their work is literally part of the history of Collesano, seen in bricks and tiles on buildings and churches, and used as apothecary jars and many other practical and decorative pieces that were produced in quartiere stazzone.

More coming soon...
