The Arms of Antonio
                                              Pighi

There is no grant of arms in existence however, the authenticity and antiquity of the coat of arms are certified by court antiquarian appraisals on different items, particularly the keystone of the ancient family residence.

The arms are believed to have been assumed no later than the end of the XVII century. The family is an ancient Burgher family residing in the outskirts of Verona, Italy. A note in the Status Animarum of the late XVIII – early XIX century reports that the family were long engaged in the trade of hemp ropes, a lucrative activity in which the area has been documented to excel since a trade letter of 1342.

They are canting arms, pichi/pighi likely being a linguistic corruption from Latin pica (magpie) or picus (woodpecker) used to indicate little birds in general in medieval times.

At Antonio’s death in 1902, the arms were inherited and used by his daughter Angela Santa, and her brother Giuseppe Bovaventura. The arms have been registered at the request of Daniele Scarpi, great grandson of Antonio Pighi and grandson of Angela Santa.
