Piazza Antonio Costanzi
The noble family, originally from Ferrara, has among its top members Lelio Torelli, first secretary of Grand Duke of Tuscany Cosimo I and Giacomo Torelli, great designer of the seventeenth century.
The most prominent figures of the family are Guido Nolfi (1554-1627), a learned man who performed important assignments in the Roman Curia and Vincenzo Nolfi (1594-1665), a historian, a literate and prince of the Academy of the Fano Scompositions.
The Marcolins gave Fano, the Marche, the nation and Europe illustrious men, many of whom belonged to the Order of St. Stephen Pope and Martyr made up of Cosimo I de Medici, approved by Pope Pius VI. In 1596 with Matteo Marcolini, a priori of Rota, this branch also takes the name of Marcolini del Balì.
