Corona de la nobleza Bozzuto Ancient and noble family from Naples, but with settlements also in Puglia and precisely in Biccari (Foggia) and in Bari, of clear and ancestral virtue, that has worldwide spread, during the centuries. The nobility of the family is clearly confirmed by its presence in the valuable work "Il Dizionario storico-blasonico delle famiglie nobili e notabili italiane, estinte e fiorenti" of the Italian writer and heraldist Giovan Battista di Crollalanza (19 May 1819 – 8 March 1892), published in Pisa in three volumes between 1886 and 1890, and in "Memorie delle Famiglie nobili delle province meridionali d'Italia".

an Enrico Capece, called "Bozzuto", in the year 1136. feudal since the time of Queen Giovanna I, it has enjoyed nobility at the Capuano's seat and was owner of numerous baronies. Moreover, this family, in all ages, always stood out, thanks to the prominent figures, which gave birth, in the public service, in the liberal professions and in the military service. Among these, without undervalue the omitted, we would like to mention: Andrea, governor of the Duchy of Amalfi and of the island of Ischia, in 1328; Giacomo archbishop of Naples, created cardinal in 1378; Giovanni, Captain of King Ladislao and Giovanna II councillor; Giovanni, captain of the city of Bari, in 1399, and the father of Nicholas, Palamedes, Flaminio, Maria and Cecilia; Giacomo created cardinal in 1401; Giovanni created cardinal in 1454; Annibale created cardinal in 1550; Antonio, landowner in the Foggia area, flourishing in 1572. From the analysis of colours and symbols of the coat of arms we can have more information about the family virtues. Gold ("or") symbolizes generosity and elevation of the mind; the shell ("escallop") symbolizes protection of providence and became popular as a token of pilgrimage to the shrine of Santiago de Compostela; the tincture azure symbolizes water, the continuity of life, it is a colour of nobility, beauty, chastity and fidelity. Family names so old, without any doubt honour not only families but also the cities that welcomed them; seems to be, in fact, very worthy the living members of this family which, with much decorum, carry this noble surname, which has had several illustrious members.
