Placuit atque convenit inter Adelardum diaconum de order maiore Sancte Mediolanensis Ecclesie filium quondam Lanfranci qui dicitur Cuminus, nec non et inter Iohannem qui dicitur from Muzane de civitate Mediolani ...". We find traces of this surname in Villa d'Adda (BG) since the end of the 1300s where the Cumini are mentioned among the Ghibelline families of the city, in the same period we find Cumini in Artegna (UD).
