Jewish Bankers

The Italian Norzi or Norsa family, whose name derives from the Umbrian city of Norsa, is documented from 1369 in Ferrara, Mantua and other places in Northern Italy, mainly in connection with banking activities.

Manuel Norzi moved from Rimini to Mantua in 1428 and obtained permission to open a loan bank (condotta). Leone Norzi and others were authorized in 1482 to trade in wool and silk cloths.
