The Salamon family - sometimes Salomon - was a noble patrician Venetian family of ancient but uncertain origin, counted among the so-called “Case Vecchie” (Hold Houses) of the Republic of Venice.

History

According to some sources[1][2], they would derive from the aristocratic family of the Centranico - Barbolano, and they moved from Salerno or Cesena before living in Torcello and finally in Venice.[3] The first to assume this surname was the Doge Pietro Barbolano (11th century)[4][5].

The Salamon family founded the church and the female monastery of Santa Marta in Venice: the oldest of the family had the privilege of installing the new elected abbess, and every year, on the day of the titular saint, she gave a rose to the family.

One of the most important members of the family was fr. Jacopo Salamon (1235-1314), a Dominican friar, who was beatified by the Catholic Church.

The coat of arms of the Salamon family (lozenge in silver and red)[6] is still visible on the facade of the Salamon Palace (15th century) in Cannaregio, Venice.
