Grazia, wife of Angelo, daughter of Leuccio di Tivoli: Rome, 1617
Grazia, wife of Angelo, daughter of Leuccio di Tivoli
Grazia dictated her will to the Jewish rabbi/notary Simone de Castelnuovo, who recorded it in Italian. At the time of her will dictation, Grazia was married but had no children. The vast majority of her few goods she left to the Compagnia di Ghemilut hasadim, the confraternity that often took care of the sick and poor. She also left 2 scudi to a synagogue (scola), meant to pay for oil. She left one scudi to her husband Angelo and her sister Prudenzia, "neofita." To another couple, Raffaele and his wife Bensivenuta, she left a used article of clothing ("una vesta paonaza usata") so that their son, Vitale, would say kaddish (the mourner's prayer) for her soul after her death, ostensibly because she did not have sons. She also left to her "compare," the son of Salomone Trevis, 5 "giuli." An inventory follows the will, listing the few goods she owns.
