Antonio Staropoli was born in Sicily, Italy where the craftmanship of masonry is predominant. Antonino was taught by family members and other paesani (Italian natives) how to labor as a teenager. With
a strong passion for the art of stone, brick and concrete, learning to master the skills of masonry came naturally to him.
Now, Antonino is passing on his knowledge to his son Francesco and watches with great pride as he learns the trade. Francesco brings his interest and knowledge of excavation to frantella construction, which completes the groundbreaking phase of construction.
