Viterbo – Coats of Arms

I am not able to give you further details on the noble families that have crossed this city over the centuries, they are really too many!

But here you can admire some more landmarks of their passage!

I like to read signs and this one says that the Coat of Arms here below was typical of the Chigi family.

Italians know (or should know!) its importance! They were nobles, originary from Siena, and among their descendants they count very powerful men, bishops and popes. This sign was hanging on one of their buildings in the very center of Viterbo and I cannot help but keep on thinking of their even more famous property in Rome, Palazzo Chigi. Today, official residence of the Italian Prime Minister.
