Calvanese Early Origins



The surname Calvanese was first found in Milan (Italian: Milano, Milanese: Milan), the second-most populous city in Italy and the capital of Lombardy. The two palaces in the Piazza del Duomo, Palazzo Reale and the palace of the archbishops are notable. The city is rich in art, museums, galleries and sights. Castello Sforzesco stands in the Parco. 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. This distinguished noble family emerged in the record books in Milan prior to 1190 but they were already nobility in far off Arragon and in Venice. They were granted the castle of Greci e Gangi in Palermo by the presiding Normans at that time (1200).
