Santelli History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Santelli family

The surname Santelli was first found in Lucca, a city and comune in Tuscany, capital of the province of Lucca and where Bascilican type churches abound. The history commences in 218 B.C., and passed through many hands in the intervening centuries. Many notable scholars and prelates lived here. The cathedral of St Martin was begun in 1060 by Bishop Anselm, later Pope Alexander II. It has many museums and galleries.

To be recorded at this time was in itself a family honor.
