The Village of Picinisco is one of the main sources of Italian immigration to Scotland. Together with the village of Barga in Tuscany it is estimated that over 60 percent of Scots Italians can trace their ancestry to either of these villages.

In 1957 Pietrina Capocci (far right) married Domenico Crolla from the neighbouring village of Fontinue.  After a few years in Picinsico they both left to start a new life and family together in Edinburgh.
