Cortese Early Origins



The surname Cortese was first found in Cremona a city in Lombardy, capital of the province of Cremona. Founded by the Romans in 218 it has a checkered history. Virgil studied here. The finest building is the cathedral in the Lombard Romanesque style. It was started in 1107. There are many frescos from the 16th century. It was Austrian in 1814, but became a part of Italy in 1859. 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. The family were first found in the year 1184 at the time of the Norman occupation. They emerged in 1387 as a patrician family. Claudio was a senior senator of the city in that year.
