Fiorentino family & Ischia
I was born at Via Casa Fiorentino, Fiorentino (next to Panza (in the council of Forio d'Ischia in the province of Naples, Italy). There's quite a number of families by the same surname, a few of which are not related and go by differing nick names such as "pilota" (pilot) which family I belong or "corriere" (courier), etc.I was told that there's quite a few unrelated families by that surname on the island and that they came to the island on or about about the year 1500 from florence during the troubled times of Savonarola the hanging man of the church that crucified & burned at the stake the florentines. Botticelli to save his life had to put some of his works in the fire (for he depicted & celebrated beauty and not religious icons); the rich their jewels. Troubled times fot the Medicis.
