Ricci Curbastro: ancient roots

A Noble family from Lugo di Romagna (Ravenna), the Ricci Curbastro moved there in the thirteenth century after being driven out of Florence during the Guelph-Ghibelline wars.
Their coat of arms is light blue with a red band accompanied on top by a comet placed between two gold stars, with a natural oak at the point terraced by greenery (Curbastro probably derives from the Latin, “quercus”), flanked by two facing hedgehogs ( ricci in Italian).
