HI! My name is Lara Ann Pezza, and my grandmother is Ann Pezza from Itri, Italy..a small mountain town north of Naples, I believe. I have just started to research the origins of our family name an our Italian heritage. I come from a large sector of the Pezza family originating in Knightsville, Rhode Island (which is a section of the famous Italian village of Providence named Federal Hill). My family now is spread throughout the small state, but we still gather in Knightsville for reunions. If you have any questions please e-mail me..Thanks!..hope to hear from you soon

Dear Lara, It's amazing to me how many Pezzas there are! Ican remember my uncle Tony talking about the hill. I have family in Johnston,R.I. One cousin lived on Irons st. My family always went to the Feast. My Grandfather was always very closed mouth when it came to our ancesstors. So was my father. His name was Bathlemao[Robert] Pezza. He did tell me once his family was from atown in English that meant the Black Fist. He said the Italian word but I can't remember? My Grandparents spoke Italian. I had God parents[deceased]named Barney& joesephene Gesualdi. My Grandfathers brother was named Carmen Pezza. Thats all I can think of right now. Please write again Sincerely Anne Marie

Hello, My father is Michael Pezza from Irons ave and owner of Pezza Garage doors in Johnston. My Aunt is Patricia Pezza. I was named after my Grandfather on Tabor Drive in Johnston. I heard our family was from a small town called Valiagrila (sp?) "vally of agriculture". The nearest Town of size was Caserta. I too remember going to the feast, I still do on that sunday to watch the procession. For more information look up Pezza Farms. www.pezzafarms.com on plainfield street. They are closer to knightsville and know alot about where we are from.

I have a Younger brother Michael who is 17 and a younger sister Gina, 15. I am 19. My brother and I both work for my father and Aunt at Pezza Doors. I asked my father about our origins in Italy and looked some stuff up. Itri and Valle Agricola are in the same area and the whole pezza/pezzi family came over together after the civil war to help with the masonry.
We just recieved news that my dads aunt in Fort Lauderdale Fl. just passed away. I can not remember her name. sorry.

ps. Merry Christmas
