Other family. Family of the South Italy that had origin from two nobles House: the Cola and the Grossi, or Grosso, both from Messina, Sicily. The Cola family has its blazon described 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. The Grossi, or Grosso, family distinguished itself with a Geronimo, noble consul of the art of silk in Messina in 1741-42 and noble sworn in 1742-43. 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.
