Ancient and noble family from Emilia, with residence in the city of Modena, of clear and ancestral virtue, that has worldwide spread, over the centuries.

Besides, this family, in all ages, always stands out, thanks to the prominent figures, which gave birth, in the public service, in... Continuathe liberal and ecclesiastical professions and in the military service.
