The Piccio family is a family of Portuguese Jewish origin from Venice with established branches in different countries, most notably Argentina, France, Italy and the Philippines. Members also reside in lesser numbers in other countries.
The family’s name is an Italianized standardization by notaries in Rome of the original Portuguese Figo, which had occasionally been misrendered as Pigo due to the ambiguous pronunciation of the Hebrew פיגו, in which form it had often been written.
Notable members include:
- Azaria Piccio, Venetian rabbi;
- Carlo Piccio, Philippine swimmer;
- Gino Piccio, Italian priest;
- Giuseppe Piccio, Italian literary critic;
- Mosè Piccio, Ottoman rabbi and lexicographer;
- Pier Ruggero Piccio, Italian World War I general and founding Chief of Staff of the Italian Air Force;
- Vicente Piccio, Jr., Philippine major general and Air Force Chief.
