Is there Coats of arms for different towns?

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

Wikipedia is actually a pretty good resource for them.

I found the coat of arms for Napoli ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naples ), and Calabria ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calabria ), my family's points of origin
