A large and decorative Italian genealogical tree of the Stella (Della)-Scorzosi family. An early 18th-century Italian genealogical tree of the Stella (Della)-Scorzosi family, the descendants of the Sienese Pietro Scotti, who became privileged and donated with Monticchiello (Monte Suchiello) in 1397. Other sources describe that Monticchiello, during a conflict with Florence and Montepulciano, was sold to Florence for 2,000 florin, and remained under their control until 1401 when due to a peace treaty it returned into the possession of Siena (Repetti, 1839?). Members of the family originated from or spread to Murello, Florence, and Arezzo. Literature: Repetti, E.: Dizionario geografico fisico storico della Toscana. 3, [M-O].
