The Torriani or della Torre are a very ancient Lombard noble house, and were the original lords of Milan, before the Aquileian schism; they attempted to enforce the Aquileian faith, but the Catholics rebelled and placed the Visconti on the throne. Afterwards, the della Torre, using their vast riches and influence, could secure for themselves a prestigious and powerful position within the Patriarchate of Aquileia itself, pulling the strings of its politics and in many cases having many of their family members anointed as Patriarchs. Since then, the Della Torre attempted to restore the ties severed with Rome, in the attempt to obtain a reconciliation between the two faiths.
