I am descended, it says here

E nobilissima in molte citta,

Ed e divisa in molti rami

The Barone family, my family

It is noble in many cities and

Is divided into many branches it

Had many fiefs and illustrious men in court

In the magistrature, in the army

And in the church it was

Conferred high chivalrous honors and

Was vested with the holy orders

Of Malta from the 15th Century

It includes, as branches, the Counts

Of Casola and the Marchesi di Liveri

A castle and a title

Or at the very least a story

That belongs to me in Italy
