So it was the Chancellery where the brightest students went, almost all being Cittadini who would serve the government. Cicero was taught in the mornings; Virgil, Homer, and Terence in afternoons. The old Vatican Formularies were also adapted to Venetian custom.

200 Sources of research I paid Deborah Walberg and Mateeo Casini to do over a thre—year period on the Alberti families which they called Alberti ‘A’ and Alberti ‘B’ both prominent families of cittadini originarii, or what is also called, cittadinanza  ordinaria in Venice. Alberti ‘A’ includes research both on my book’s character Andrea Alberti and his wife, Veronica nee. Cremona.     * Family trees for both Piero and Giulio

Information concerning Veronica’s Cremona family was found in ASV Avogaria di Commun B. 370 #67, and B. 377 #48. These records include Andrea’s help in obtaining cittadinanza  originarii status for her family even though born outside Venice. They also include her family’s expression of the warmest of sentiments for Andrea’s doing this. 

Concerning Andrea’s father Piero’s (2nd generation) dowry and marriage to Isabella da Canal in 1556, this is found in Avogardia di Comun, B. 433 #9

Concerning 3rd and 4th generations of the ‘A’ branch, which includes Andrea Alberti (3rd generation,) born in 1558, father of Giulio, (4th generation) who was born in 1605:

From the records of the Council of Ten, which Andrea was much later chosen to serve, my researchers found his record of service: first as elected notary, or secretary, extraordinary (notaio straordinario) in 1576, then secretary ordinary (a higher level called notaio ordinario ) in 1595. These are respectively found in:  ASV Consiglio dei Deici, Parti Comuni, reg. 32, ff. 117 r-v and. reg. 45, f. 28r.

In 1609 he is elected to Secretary of the Senate (Segretario dei Pregadi.) ASV Consiglio dei Deici, parti Comuni, reg 59, f. 207v. In 1612 he is elected Secretary to the Ten.

In 1621 he is arrested, information about this found in Cod. Cicogna 3184

It was at this point I began to become very interested in what happened to him, as Deborah had found no information subsequent to that, so I undertook some research of my own at the Shields Library in Davis. And it was here I found about the Vanni uncle and nephew who witnessed against him, and also witnessed against Antonio Foscarini, who was hung for treason. I found this in Allen Hind’s translations of English State Papers relating to Venice, the names mentioned in accounts given by their ambassador there in the 1620’s.

So with this lead, Deborah uncovered more, including Andrea’s ultimate exoneration which I not only desperately longed to hope for, but which I was sure about from what was said about Andrea by his wife’s family. In any case, all of this spurred me on tremendously to write the last few chapters of my book, “Venetian Born.” Unfortunately, she sent nothing about where it was she found this information. But at least she found it! And as a PhD. Student at Princeton I had absolutely no doubt of their veracity. In any case, it was the first time I looked forward with great anticipation to find out what really happened so far back in time.

Concerning the birth of Giulio Cesare Alberti, his baptism at the San Luca church was dated June 10, 1608.  (Canonical register n. (1565-1632) to number 143 inclusive)

*Giulio’s uncle Gasparo had ten children not shown and  a succession of sons alternately named ‘Girolamo’and ‘Gasparo’ for at least four generations after his death.

There exists no record of Giulio’s marriage, but he did become fabulously wealthy, as is indicated in his final will and testament, The translation of his will is on my website, which, after many contestations by his brother’s sons, his designated heirs, was put in a hundred-year trust called a fideicomissum by his faithful confidant and executor Riviero.
