Ciriaco “Ciro” Cozzi and Patricia “Patti” (McNeil) Cozzi (pictured) did not spend much time apart. Three months after he died, Valentine’s Day 2013, she followed, on his birthday. Ciro, an artist, studied at the Art Students League and with Henry Hensche. He was co-founder, with Salvatore Del Deo, of Ciro & Sal’s. Patti was a registered nurse who was instrumental in the establishment of the Drop-In Center and Outer Cape Health Services. They bought this mid-19th-century house in 1973 and operated Gallery Ciro here. Austin Dunham, who owned the Sea Chest and donated the doll house at the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum, once lived here.
