(Italian: Toscana), a region in central Italy, where this ancient noble family held the castle Conti Tuscolani, in 974 when Alberto Alberici acquired the city of Piceno in Romagna.

To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
