Via Tassis – Postal dominators

0
Via Tassis takes its name from the famous Tasso family, known to most people only as the birthplace of Bernardo Tasso and his son Torquato Tasso, author of Jerusalem Delivered, but which can actually be considered one of the first European multinational companies, since it held a monopoly on postal services between the German Empire and other European states for centuries. From the 16th century onwards, this family monopolised European postal services thanks to the many offices run by different branches of the family in all the most important cities. The Tasso family created an enterprise that soon reached the pinnacle of financial power, guaranteeing its members honours and coats of arms. In the 17th century, the German branch of the family even obtained the title of prince from the emperors.
