'Insignia nobilium Neapolitanorum et Genuensium' - 15th century at Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek [click: 'Miniaturansicht']. The book to consult no doubt, if you're looking for Italian car medallion design ideas.
The only background to this album of family crests of the noble houses in the Kingdom of Naples and the Republic of Genoa is some notes about the restoration of the manuscript on this translated page.
Bonus: 'Insignia nobilium Veronensium, Vicentinorum' - from the 16th century.
