Noble family from Udine, known as Fagandini, Fagagnini or Fagagna. The House owned a castle approximately seven miles from Udine but, for the revolutions of Friuli, was left without the feud and property, for confiscation. However, in 1350, one of its members took refuge in Udine, at whose citizenship was aggregated. Family names so old, without any doubt honor 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.
