Stemma Mendes

Stemma di Ferdinando Mendes (1621) - Palazzo del Capitano

Ferdinando di Giorgio of Mr. Ferdinando Mendes was Captain in Bagno di Romagna from 22 June 1620 to 21 June 1621. At the end of the mandate he affixed his coat of arms on the facade of the Palazzo del Capitano: an oval limestone shield supported by a mask and surmounted by a gate helmet; within the frame and scrolls a dragon accompanied on top by a mountain of six peaks. The coat of arms of the Mendes, for the various facings of the façade, is placed erroneously above the sandstone plaque of Captain Antonio Luperelli (1747-1750), while its headstone is placed under the Capponi's coat of arms, and reads: "FERDINANDUS GEORGII / [DOMI] NI FERDINANDO ME [N] DES / CAP [ITANEUS] ET COMISS [ARIUS] BALNEI / MDCXX ET DCXXI ".
