Pennella Early Origins



The surname Pennella was first found in Bolgna (Latin: Bononia), the largest city and the capital of Emilia-Romagna Region. The famous University of Bolgna was founded in the 11th century, by the 13th century the student body was nearly 10,000. Dante and Petrarch studied there. Tisso was tried there for 1564 for writing satirical poems. Bologna naturally, is famous for its sausages. But many noted scholars were born there. 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 was in itself a family honor.The Pinelli-Walckenaer Atlas dated 1384 was in the possession of the Pinelli family of Venice for many years, until it was purchased in 1790 by the Baron Charles Athanase Walckenaer of Paris.
