  • The Ruspoli were originally an 18th century Florentine family. A branch of the family moved to Rome at the beginning of the 18th century. In 1713 Francesco Maria Ruspoli increased the families standing in Rome by buying the Palace at the Corso from the Family Caetani (previously Rucellai) which still exists today . The baby carriage bears the coat of arms of Sigismondo Ruspoli, the son of Francesco Maria who lived in the Palace at the Corso in the middle of the 18th century.
