Rastro heráldico de la familia: Cavigliano
Ancient Italian family, of clear and ancestral virtue, that has worldwide spread, over the centuries. According to heraldic conjectures, this family belonged to the community of Savigliano, whose inhabitants had been invested with the title of Counts. It is very probable that the family itself was originally called Savigliano and that when its different branches moved elsewhere were sometimes annotated as Cavigliano. In fact we find a main branch of the family in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies and, precisely, in Calabria. Right here, this family, in all ages, always stood out, thanks to the prominent figures, which gave birth, in the public service, in the liberal professions and in the military service.

Family names so old, without any doubt honour not only 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 members.
