Traccia araldica della famiglia: Sessini
Ancient and noble family from Sardinia, of clear and ancestral virtue, that has worldwide spread, over the centuries. According to tradition, the family descends from the noble House of Sessi from Verona and Vicenza, that had the investiture of the fiefs of Casteldaldo with the title of Counts of Rolo, confirmed by Emperor Charles V with diploma on December 2 1532. Anyway, the Sessini family appears flourishing "more nobilium" in Sardinia since the seventeenth century and it always stands out, thanks to the prominent figures, which gave birth. Among these, without undervalue the omitted, we would like to mention: Martino, landowner, flourishing in Cagliari, in 1624; Tommaso, born in Cagliari and lived in the seventeenth century, who distinguished himself in the military carrery; Giacomo, who, with honor, militated many years under the Catholic King Philip IV; Pietro Martino, jurist, living in Cagliari, in 1656; Agostino, distinct clergyman, who acquired great...

reputation in the art of sacred oratory and lived in Cagliari; Salvatore, Doctor, "in utroque jure", living in Cagliari, in 1703; Gio. Batta, landowner, living in Cagliari, in 1735. This House has contracted kinship with the very noble family Aresu from Oristano. The Aresu family had great reputation and its members were in possession of a considerable fortune; in 1575 Giorgio was real attorney and collector of the rents of Oristano. In 1634, a Dr. Giovanni Antonio obtained the hereditary knighthood and in 1635 the nobility. Starting from 1653, his descendants were admitted to military displacement and took part in all parliaments. 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 the living members of this family which, with much decorum, carry this noble surname, which has had several illustrious persons.
