The "Livre de mémoire" of the Cassina family relates the principal episodes in the family life over three generations living in Anverx, then Cologne, then Bruxelles, and finally in eastern Flanders. Between 1576 and 1650, the successive heads of this Milanese family - the father Francesco Bernardino senior, the son Ieronimo, and the grand-son Francesco Bernardino junior - each took up the office of keeping records, noting with the most consistent chronologic precision the births, deaths, celebrations, and diverse events that marked the family life of their household. The mention of public events tends to become more important in the writings of Francesco Bernardino junior, who participated in the aristocratic life of the Catholic Netherlands from the time of the siege of Ostende (1601-1604) to the peace treaty of Münster (1648). This "livre de famille" is invaluable, documenting the life, finances and attitudes of the quotidian. Linguists will find a number of phonological, syntactic and lexical phenomena, as the Italian gives way, little by little, to French - the language of the society frequented by Francesco Bernardino junior. Reading this book allows one to witness the passage from an era of religious troubles to one of European wars, from an age of mannerism to the Baroque period, and from the world of Breughel to that of Rubens.
