Peter Cilio

Peter Cilio, 78, formerly of Chestnut Hill, founder of Campania International, a manufacturer, importer and wholesale distributor of garden accessories, died Dec. 16 at his home in Blue Bell after a long illness.
Mr. Cilio retired in 2000 as president of the firm that distributes its products throughout the United States and Canada from a manufacturing plant in Pennsburg.
In the 1970s, after realizing that handmade terra cotta pots from Italy were unavailable in the United States, he opened "Peter's," a garden center in Quakertown specializing in European style garden ornaments. The center still is owned and operated by the Cilio family.
Mr. Cilio was born in Ponte Romito, a small town in the Campania region of Italy. His childhood on the family farm was cut short with the advent of World War II and the German occupation of Southern Italy, when the Cilio's house was requisitioned by the German command.
To escape the air raids, the family was forced to find shelter in the countryside, sleeping in caves until the Americans liberated Southern Italy. Upon graduation from high school in 1947, Mr. Cilio decided to escape the devastation of postwar Italy and join his father in Philadelphia. By 1950, the family had settled in Germantown.
During the Korean War, he was drafted into the American Army and served in Germany. In 1953 he was named one of six outstanding soldiers of the U.S. Army Command in Europe.
He was married in 1955 and settled in Chestnut Hill, where he raised four children and ran a successful contracting business.
When he was not working at his garden center in Quakertown, he spent time at North Mowing, his farm in Springfield, Vt., and at Marco Island, Fla.
Mr. Cilio is survived by his wife, Ruth; sons Peter, Anthony and Joseph; a daughter, Nina Reelick, and seven grandchildren.

In its early years, Campania's designs, under the artistic direction of Peter Cilio Sr., were based on traditional European historical precedents. In time, however, Campamia looked beyond classic old world traditions and distinguished itself in the marketplace by developing unique and original copyrighted designs which demonstrate a uniquely American perspective.

Peter C. Cilio, Campania's creative director, is now responsible for the creation and selection of the Campania product line. His discerning eye, developed from a keen interest in garden design, architecture and art history, has proven an invaluable asset. While Peter continues to explore and refine classic garden traditions in his designs, he is not afraid to innovate. His introductions range from refined classicism to elegant whimsy, and from cutting edge modern to sophisticated country. Since Peter is an avid gardener, he understands what is appropriate for garden art, especially texture, patina and the softening effects of age and weather.
