The surname Pizana was first found in Venezia where the Pisani family possessed the grand riches and estates since the year 905. 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.
