Landini has perhaps several stocks in the quadrilateral having vertexes Genoa, Como, Arezzo and Pesaro, Landoni and Landone are specific to the area between Como and Varese, deriving from the medieval name Lando, Landonis of which we have an example in the 9th century Historia Langabardorum Beneventarnorum: "... Huic ergo Lodoguico augusto suppliciter relatum est for Landonem comitem Capuanum, filium Landolfi supradicti viri, et for Ademarium iam fatum virum ...", or by apheresis of names like Orlando. Count Landone (843-860) contributed to the reconstruction of the city of Capua on the banks of the Volturno river; towards the end of the IXth century the Lombard Landone di Vescovio, bishop of Civitate Sabinense became Pope.
