There are surprising numbers of versions of Saint Fiacre, but because so little is known of the man, they all pretty much come down to this: "A monk with a spade," said Peter Cilio, creative director of Campania International, a maker of upscale garden ornaments in Quakertown, Pa. The company sells two versions in poured concrete, known in the trade as cast stone, one 12 inches high and another 29 inches. "I think most people assume he's a Saint Francis with a spade," said Cilio. "He's more of a saint for aficionados."
Cilio said that after the Sept. 11 attacks there was an increase "of devotional or religious pieces in the garden.

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, Campania 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. This sensibility, combined with clean lines and a sense of proportion create the classic Campania look.
In house, Peter is responsible for the design and mold-making department, the cornerstone of which is Eddie Martinez.
Eddie and Peter collaborate continually to refine and realize Peter's design concepts.
Peter also oversees a group of talented independent artists and craftsmen.
