Variazioni cognome: Jommi - Jomini
Ancient family of Russian origin, with the title of Barons of the Empire, known as Iommi, Jommi or Jomini, of clear and ancestral virtue, that has settled, in very ancient times, in Italy, at first in the Marche region and, over the centuries, even in other regions. The origin of this surname should be sought in a diminutive form of the proper name, of Greek origin, "Iomene", belonged probably to a mythical ancestor. Anyway, this family also belongs to the chivalric status since the fourteenth century, that is since the time when the brothers Ottavio and Francesco Iommi lived as Crusader Knights. Besides, this family, in all ages, always stands out, thanks to the prominent figures, which gave birth, in the public service, in the liberal and ecclesiastical professions and in the military service. Among these, without undervalue the omitted, we would like to mention: Luciano, chief physician at the... Continuacourt of Urbino, living in 1453; dr. Ernesto, lawyer, living in Urbino, in 1562; Matteo, doctor in "utroque jure", living in Pesaro, in 1587; dr. Ermete Royal Notary, living in Naples, in 1598; Giacomo, notary, living in Pesaro, in 1610; D. Saverio, from Ancona, canon, theologian and apostolic commissioner, living in 1621; Fr. Fausto, of the Order of Preachers, auditor and provost of the order, living in Rome, in 1657; Alfredo, doctor in Sacred Theology, living in Rome, at the end of the eighteenth century; D. Antonio, theologian and Reader in philosophy at various universities, living in Bologna, in 1702; Knight. Filippo Maria, doctor in "utroque jure", living in Ascoli, in 1703; Giulio Maria, counselor in Urbino, living in 1711; Matteo, lawyer, living in 1723; Fulvio, a leading activist in the insurrection of Urbino, of 8 September 1860. Family names so old, without any doubt, honor not only the families but also the cities that welcomed them; seems to be, in fact, very worthy living members of this family which, with much decorum, carry this noble surname, which has had several illustrious persons.
