Heraldrys of family: Reciniello
Ancient and illustrious Italian family from Lombardy, of clear and ancestral virtue, that has worldwide spread, over the centuries. According to what has been handed down, the Reciniello were admitted to the nobility of their land, for merits towards the Imperials, and, in particular, for having some of its members distinguished themselves in the famous battle of Pavia (Feb. 24, 1525), the decisive military engagement of the war in Italy between Francis I of France and the Habsburg emperor Charles V. Moreover, this family always stood out, thanks to the prominent figures, which gave birth, in the public service, in... To be continued
the liberal and ecclesiastical professions and in the military service. Among these, without undervalue the omitted, we would like to mention: Luigi, landowner in Lombardy, flourishing in Pavia, in 1503; Antonio and Federico, captains of arms, flourishing in Pavia, in 1525; Giacomo, doctor in "utroque jure", flourishing in Pavia, in 1534; Gio. Batta, landowner in Lombardy, flourishing in 1548; Giulio Maria, notary in Pavia, flourishing in 1563; Fr Benedetto, of the Order of Preachers, flourishing in 1589; Federico, doctor in "utroque jure", flourishing in Milan, in 1616; Leonardo, doctor in both laws, flourishing in Pavia, in 1627; Otto, captain of arms, flourishing in Milan, in 1642; Luigi Antonio, councillor in Pavia, flourishing in 1657; D. Agostino, canon and apostolic commissioner, flourishing in Naples, in 1682; Tommaso Maria, doctor in both laws, flourishing in Milan, in 1711; Fr Carlo, of the Order of Minors Reformed, flourishing in 1727; Federico, landowner in Southern Italy, who settled his family in Campania, flourishing in 1741; Federico Maria, jurist in Milan, living in 1765. 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.
