Fraquelli and Brusa--Monuments


   A few of the craftsmen who worked for Fraquelli and Brusa are known, particularly those responsible for the Neidel Cross in Riverbend Cemetery .  In addition to George Stenhouse and Nicholas Visgilio, it had figures and fine details carved by Angelo Buzzi who did work for several local companies,


A monument to “Departed Members” of the Westerly Fire Department located between the Westerly Fire Department and the Town Hall was carved by Constantine Brusa (Facebook comment by Rich Brooks of Buzzi Memorials).



The inscription on the base of the statue of Whistler's Mother was cut at Fraquelli and Brusa. Click here for more information and a picture of the entire monument.
