"The Piccirilli Factor" is a documentary by award-winning filmmaker Eduardo Montes-Bradley that explores the legacy of the Piccirilli Marble Carving Studio in New York. Following the death of Attilio Piccirilli, the main creative force behind this family enterprise, the studio closed, leading to the loss of all business records and family archives.

With "The Piccirilli Project," Montes-Bradley reconstructs the story from its origins in Massa-Carrara to the family's role in New York during the City Beautiful Movement. The Piccirillis were essential collaborators with some of the most prominent American sculptors and were award-winning sculptors in their own right. In the process, Attilio, the major creative force behind the clan’s efforts, emerges as an omnipresent protagonist with major works of his own.
