The fact that the inscription is in Italian (and not Latin) suggests that it is not contemporary with the event it records, and instead was erected many years later. Even more telling is the inaccurate rendition of the Royal Arms. 3
1 Corso Bruno Buozzi leads out from the east end of the main piazza of the town (Piazza G. Matteotti, formerly Piazza della Pace).
2 I gratefully acknowledge the permission granted me to access the palace by the present owner, Signor Felice Canfora.
3 The Royal Arms are normally grandquarterly, 1 and 4 quarterly France and England, 2 Scotland, 3 Ireland. Here, however, they are quarterly, England, Scotland, France, Ireland.
