Scope and Contents

Notarized in 1498 by Johannes Tornomino of Cremona. The deed was made to prove the dominion of Alessandro Picenardi over the family property in Cremona, Italy. The notary makes the argument that the land was sold or rented illegally from the Picenardi family. Instead, the Picenardi family had rightful dominion over the property because of their nobility and the fact that they are the caretakers of the property. Also, Johannes makes the argument for dominion because the Picenardi family only left the property in Cremona due to foreign force. Therefore the actions that took place after with the property are unlawful.
