Sapevate che l'etimologia del nome Borromeo ha il sapore di una leggenda?
📃
Vaghi racconti ci narrano che un certo Lazzaro – il primo presunto esponente della casata Borromeo – si recò a Roma nel 1300 per compiere il pellegrinaggio dell’Anno Santo.
Al suo ritorno gli venne assegnato il nome di “Bon Romeo”, ovvero “buon pellegrino che è stato a Roma”, e da questo soprannome sarebbe derivato il cognome della famiglia.
✨
Un'altra storia ci racconta che la famiglia Borromeo proviene dal borgo di San Miniato al Tedesco, che abbandona nel 1370, per costruire, nei secoli, un patrimonio di bellezze di cui l’Isola Bella è l’espressione più compiuta.

Did you know that the etymology of the name Borromeo has the flavor of a legend?
📃
Vague stories tell us that a certain Lazzaro – the first presumed exponent of the Borromeo family – went to Rome in 1300 to make the pilgrimage of the Holy Year.
On his return he was given the name "Bon Romeo", or "good pilgrim who was in Rome", and this nickname is where the family surname would have derived from.
✨
Another story tells us that the Borromeo family came from the village of San Miniato al Tedesco, which the family abandoned in 1370, to build, over the centuries, a heritage of beauty, of which Isola Bella is the most complete expression.
