THE NOBLE EMO FAMILY

LEONARDO EMO'S HERITAGE

Et se par caso nascesse in opinione ad alcuna di dette mie fiole di non maritarsi, non monacarsi, […] voglio che siano honorade da moi fiolli, spesade alla sua tavola et vestide e calzade e una masera a sua posta, et ducati 25 all'anno habear cadauna di esse da spender, et se per caso per mala compagnia o altro non potesse star in casa in compagnia dei suoi fratelli, che Dio guardi, voglio che habbino de la mia facoltà ducati desento l'anno per una vita sua […] et se occorresse vender qualche ben della mia facultà voglio che mia mogier lo possa far […].

Ma prego ben […]  a non vender ben alcuno posto nella villa de Fanzuol.

Testamento di  Leonardo Emo (1532-1586)

The cemetery of Fanzolo

An appropriate conclusion of the historical journey of the Emo family is the visit to the cemetery of Fanzolo. Leaving behind the car park of Villa Emo and keeping to the right, you will reach the little cemetery of Fanzolo, after having crossed the level crossing.

 

Here in an area bordered by the ancient surrounding wall of the cemetery you can see the tombs of the Emo family from the last two centuries; here in fact are buried the last inhabitants of the villa from 1810 to 2003 who, probably spent their lives and worked somewhere else, but wanted to be buried next to the family's ancient place of residence.

 

Starting from the wall overlooking the entrance to the area, there is the most ancient of the burials, that of Giordano Emo Capodilista (1767-1810) son of Leonardo Antonio Melchiore Emo and Beatrice Capodilista, the first one to have the title of Emo Capodilista. All there is left is a plaque detached from the wall bearing the coats of arms of the two houses. 

 

Next on the left there are the tombs of Giordano's wife and daughter, Lucia Maldura (1803-1892) and Bianca Emo Capodilista (1B). Further on on the left towards the entrance there is the tomb of their son Giovanni Emo Capodilista (1828-1906) 2A,  that of his wife Maria de Orestis (1837-1914) 2B) and of their son Corrado Emo Capodilista (1878-1942)

 

On the other side, opposite Corrado there is the tomb of Carlo Emo-Capodilista (1866-1925, 4) and after this, the tomb of Corrado's son, Lorenzo Maria Emo Capodilista (1909-1973) and that of his wife Barbara Steven (1916-2003, 5).

 

At the end of the tour there is a stone bench placed at thee head of the last tomb, bearing the names of Countess Caroline Emo's parents, Wallace Southam (1900-1990) and Ann Southam (1907-1987, 6)
