Antica ed illustre famiglia proveniente dalla Savoia. Fu insignita del titolo di nobile. La presenza del motto nella bibliografia documentata della famiglia ci conferma l’avita nobiltà raggiunta della casata. Infatti l’origine del motto risale a circa il XIV secolo e deve essere ricercata in quei detti arguti che venivano scritti sui vessilli o bandiere dei cavalieri, esposti alle finestre delle locande in cui questi alloggiavano, in occasione dei tornei, e durante i tornei stessi. Il motto era un pensiero espresso in poche parole facente allusione a un sentimento palese o nascosto, a una qualità, a un ricordo storico, per stimolo al coraggio o onore.
