History/Origin This Alice Springs suburb takes is named in commemoration of Pasquale "Patsy" (1888-1993) and Antonia (1891-1979) Ciccone (pronounced Chic-own) who were early Italian pioneers of Central Australia. Having arrived in Australia in about 1926 and 1933 respectively, they established a base in Alice Springs and from there worked many of the mines of Central Australia. After the war they returned to Harts Range. Pasquale prospected and mined gold, copper, wolfram and mica for over 25 years and was President of the Central Australian Mica Miners Association for a time. Mr Ciccone sponsored many Centralians of the southern Italians origin.

The suburb boundary, as approved on 8 March 2007, is deliniated on CP 5075.
