�to \S. Toma. \ A twisted Dezan, and the continuation of Berlan believe \Frescada 'corruption' Frascata,\ and they want the name originated from branches or leaves, which verdure time in the next vineyard of 'S. Toma. \ The name derives (note the Code as 722, Class VII of Marciana, and the patrician family Pivoto From Frescada, coming from Istria, or by Contradas, which went extinct, according to most of the reporters, in a Nicholas the which in 1342 was one of the electors of Doge Andrea Dandolo, and also lived in 1379. remember the Barbarian (\Family Trees\ collection Stork that this family had a palace, where he lived, in the parish of St. Pantaleon, who, after the extinction of her, went into a branch of the Corner, also therefore nicknamed From Frescada. The building that is to ogival style, which is located in the bottom of the \Foundation Frescada,\ and that the \Calle della Frescada\ is lined, location not far from the church of \S.

Vito, in a stream named the White Stones. \This is consistent with another ancient chronicle, quoted by Gallicciolli. Avvertasi, however, that the true date From Marco's will Frescada is the year 1320, as you can read on the door of the hospitable, or hospice, still subsisting in S. Vito, at the arrival of the \Piere White,\ now the \Torreselle.\ And that servant an adjustment to the chronicles mentioned, the fact that pose as occurred somewhat earlier.
