In Milano : Per Gio. Batta. Bidelli, 1632. - 1632 1ed Lives of Twelve Visconti Duchy of MILAN Italy Como Giovio FINE BINDING EXQUISITE & RARE Le vite dei dodeci Visconti An absolutely stunning book by Como – an authoritative historical work of the life and works of the twelve Visconti who ruled Milan in the 15th and 16th-centuries. Paolo Giovio (1483 – 1552) was an Italian physician, historian, biographer, and prelate. Visconti is the family name of two important Italian noble dynasties of the Middle Ages. There are two distinct Visconti families: the first one (chronologically) in the Republic of Pisa in the mid twelfth century who achieved prominence first in Pisa, then in Sardinia where they became rulers of Gallura. The second rose to power in Milan, where they ruled from 1277 to 1447 and where several collateral branches still exist. Pope Gregory X, who reigned from 1271 to 1276, was a member of the House of Visconti. The renowned director Luchino Visconti is a scion of this latter family.
