FRANCO.  Italian form of French Franc (q.v.), meaning "free man," from Teutonic Frang ("free lord"). (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

    Bolognese, Franco, Franco of Bologna, an illuminator mentioned by Oderisi (in Circle I of Purgatory) as being a better artist than himself, Purg. xi. 82-4.  Little is known of Franco; Vasari, who possessed some of his drawings, says (in his Vita di Giotto) that he was employed, together with Oderisi (whose pupil he is said to have been), by Boniface VIII in the Vatican library, where he illuminated many of the MSS.  He appears to have been still living in 1310.
