Heraldry for Godfather Families

Postby cpetrocchi » 04 Jun 2005, 02:46

I am doing research for the Godfather video game based on the Godfather movies. I am designing heraldry for four of the five of the families:
Tattaglia
Cuneo
Stracci
Barzini

Caot of arms, city or general area the families names are form would be of great help!

Were they from Corleone? Or do I just remember that town because one of the sons fled there?

The Godfather was born Vito Andolini in Corleone. It was at Ellis Island that supposedly a customs agent mistook the town name for his surname.

Tattaglia only a couple of people from the Ellis island data base with the EXACT surname...

I am sure there are other variations or "diffusions" of any name listed here...

Towns were Apricena (Apuila region) and S. Croce, Italy probably Florence

As you can see, not all these names are from the South, but it at least offers you a diversity of possibilities...
