Crolla Brothers from Picinisco

My Great Great Grandfather Eugenio Crolla came to Ancoats, Manchester, England with his 3 brothers, Vittorio, Gerardo and Pietro (or Petro) around 1860 - 1870. It is possible that their father Antonio Crolla (farmer) came with them. Pietro (Petro) is believed to have returned to Picinisco. I do not know their mothers name and have no information on their lives or family they left in Picinisco. Eugenio married Antonia Crolla who's father was a street musician. We beleive this side of the family also came from Picinisco. They ran an ice-cream business named Eugenio & Son's for a time. I am having difficulty as they seem to have the same surnames. If anyone finds these names familiar please get in touch.
