My mothers side of the family came from ustica and have been in New Orleans Louisiana for a good while now. Our families name is Picolo. I just lost my grand father Joseph George Picolo to cancer and He was a major influence in my life. He spoke of our sicilian heritage alot, and how proud He was of it.He deffinately instilled this pride in me as well and I plan on making my way to europe in the next couple of years and would love to visit ustica. Are there any Picolo's out there that could posibly help fill me in on some more of our heritage there?
