Francesco Pio de Savoya y de Moura, (Born 1672 - drowned in Madrid, Spain, together with his daughter and father-in-law on 15 September 1723), 6th Marquis of Castelrodrigo through his mother, a Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece since 1708, a Grandee of Spain since 12 December 1720, 4th Duke of Nocera since the death in 1676 of his father Gilberto Pio de Saboya, 2st Principe di San Gregorio, marchese di Casape, Field Marshal of the Imperial Spain Army since 1705, Lieutenant General of the Spanish Royal Armies, General Governor of the Kingdom of Sicily, Governor of Madrid, Spain, and Military Governor and Captain General of Cataluña (1715 - 1719 and 1720 - 1722).

He married before 1712, Juana Spínola Colonna y de la Cerda (1683 - 1738), a daughter of Spanish - Genoese Duke Carlo Filippo Spínola Colonna (1665 - 1721), 4 marqués de los Balbases, duca di San Severino e di Sesto, marchese di Pontecurone, a Grandee of Spain, and a Knight of the Military Order of Santiago who had married Isabel María de la Cerda y Aragón (1667 - 1708), a daughter of the 8th Dukes of Medinaceli.

They had 3 daughters, Margherita Eleanora, Lucrezia and Isabel Maria, (Madrid, 1719 - Alicante, Spain, 8 May 1799). His daughters married powerful and wealthy Spanish-Italian nobles. He also had a son, Gisberto Pio de Saboya y Spinola,, who died without issue (Madrid, 12 January 1776). Therefore, his nobility titles and Grandees of Spain passed to his daughter Isabel Maria Pio de Saboya y de la Cerda,(died 1799).

Since Isabel Maria had married twice, and there was no issue from her first marriage, the titles went to her second husband' children. He second husband was Antonio Valcarcel y Pio de Saboya (Alicante, (15 March 1748 - Aranjuez, 14 November 1808), a member of the rather average level of nobility Valcarcel, whose family came from Hellin,in the province of Murcia, Spain.

At the beginnings of the 19th Century, through female marriages, the titles went to the Falcó family from Valencia.

When the Italian-Spanish Falcó family had no appropriate issue for inheriting these titles after the death of Alfonso Falcó y de la Gandara (1903 - before 1971), the titles passed to Italian Admiral Carlo Ernesto (born 1918) from the Swiss-Italian family - Balbo Bertone di Sambuy. Their children were born in the nineteen fifties of the XX Century.
