Early Origins of the Mosconi family
The surname Mosconi was first found in Pisa a town in Tuscany
, capital of the province of Pisa. Historically, Pisa in it's inter city war in 1003 with Lucca was forced into building its own navy. Then, under threat from the Saracens from Sicily
, it found itself the aggressor against Calabria, Sicily
and even in Africa. In 1062 their ships returned from Palermo laden with spoil. But with the Norman Conquest
they became less profitable. They continued considerable rivalry with Florence and Genoa. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
