Italian term or phrase: Ca' de' Bolli
I am trying to get a translation for Ca'de' before the surname of Bolli. Can anyone help?
R. Lentz
casa dei Bolli
Explanation:
"Ca'" stands for "casa" and "de'" stands for "dei", which means that originally the Bolli family was living in that building.
Must be a word coming from the Venician dialect because it is truncated.

hope it helps
