Heraldic trace of family: Tarascio Ancient and noble Italian family from Veneto, of clear and ancestral virtue, that has worldwide spread, over the centuries. Always loyal the Serenissima Republic, as it has been handed down, this family had been admitted to the honours and privileges of patriciate precisely because of service rendered in the war of Candia and further to the usual donation of one hundred thousand ducats. 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: Pietro, jurist, flourishing in Venice, in 1503; Federico Maria, landowner, flourishing in Treviso, in 1535; Antonello, doctor of Sacred Theology, flourishing in Venice, in 1567; Fr. Tommaso, of the Order of Preachers, flourishing in 1588; Leone, militiaman, flourishing in Venice, in 1603; Don Giacomo,... To be continued
canon and apostolic commissioner, flourishing in 1632; Gio. Batta, skilled soldier, who distinguished himself for honour and virtue, in the War of Candia; Alessandro, jurist in Venice, living in 1696; Antonio, soldier of the Venetian troops, who distinguished himself in the Morea war; Pietro Maria, doctor in both laws, flourishing in Venice, in 1701; P. Alessandro, of the Order of the Minor Reformed, flourishing in Treviso, in 1712; Giulio, member of the College of Physicians of Venice, flourishing in 1729; Angelo, doctor in "utroque jure", living in Venice, in 1732; Fr. Pietro, of the Congregation of the Clerics Regular of St. Paul, flourishing in 1747. Family names so old, without any doubt, honour 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.
