Pasquale Fosca, famous artist Sora Italy

Post by Ms McMuffin »

Seeking information on the Fosca family of Sora, Italy. Particularly Pasquale Fosca born 1852 died 1929. He was a famous world renowned sculptor. The only family history on him we have is that he had a brother Luigi who was a wood craftsman. Their father (?) may also have been a craftsman. TIA.

If this is him, he seems to come from a family of peasants

There were two Pasquale Fosca's born in Sora in 1852. One is the one above and the other became the famous sculptor. If you are related to the sculptor contact me privately and I will put you in touch with other descendants.

I had seen it, but misread it, and thought it was a girl...

The famous Pasquale's father was Luigi. The family were not from Sora, they were from Naples I think. At least that is where Pasquale ended up.
