Piedmont Nobility - Foa

Postby paul.gelardi » 23 Jun 2011, 14:54

Finaly tracked down a refernce to the de Foa family in Pientmonte.
THE FOA FAMILY IS ROLLED IN THE PIEMONTESI NOBLE FAMILIES.

"....Jewish noble family from Palestina:

arma: d'argento all'albero terrazzato sostenuto da due leoni e caricato sul fogliame da una stella. il tutto al naturale"

ANNUARIO DELLA NOBILTA ITALIANA 2011 VOLUME IV PAG. 455

has anyone got access to this and can tell me any more?

Paul,
I scanned through the poem in the link you referenced. Where did you find the reference to Jewish noble family from Palestina?

I have some thoughts to add to this but I will do that separately or by pm.

A cousin gave me this information and no more.
A google search reveals Foa to be a jewish Italian family of note arriving in Turin from France in the 1600s.

Any information that you have that might connect would be appreciated.
