Altissimi is decidedly from Lazio, from Ronciglione in the Viterbo area and from Rome, Altissimo, very rare, it would seem Venetian, should derive from the name Altissimus attributed by Christian devotion to his own son, but also to the foundlings, with reference to the words of Gloria in excelsis Deo: ".. Quondam tu solus sanctus, tu solus Dominus, Tu solus Altissimus, Jesu Christe, Cum Sancto Spiritu in glory Dei Patris ...".
