Prior General 
Lorenzo DeMedici

Prince Lorenzo de Medici was born to Kristina Kuharska, a Polish noble from the Ragivil family (Polish princes) and his father

de Medici descended from the famous Florentine family in Catanzaro on November 17, 1975. From his mother he received a Catholic education led to solidarity and volunteering as the mother's family supported and financed the anti-communist Catholic resistance in Poland during the Russian regime.

His parents got married in the Vatican as they were unable to celebrate the wedding in Poland, given the Communist regime which tended to block religious marriages between the nobility of that country and the other European nobility. He graduated in Political Science at the University of Salerno and defended his thesis on the History of the Church.

He was educated according to the religious precepts of the Catholic religion and in his childhood he participated with humanitarian organizations in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia where he was confronted with the harsh reality of diseases such as cholera, typhoid and AIDS.

It also participates in fundraising for the Polish church (especially the church of Dvor Maz and the scientific high school of the same country), and to finance and host Polish seminarians in Italy who came to study at the Gregorian University. He also financed the Polish cemetery in Cassino with its small chapel.

The Medici family, for its philanthropy and for the efforts made for Polish Catholics, had the honor of hosting John Paul II during his visit to Calabria. The Medici family also renovated the church of Martirano Lombardo (Martirano was a very important cathedral and bishopric in the Middle Ages and is still today a bishopric).

The Medici family boasts among its ancestors three popes (Leo X, Clement VII, Leo XI; and Pius IV, a distant relative from a Lombard lineage of the family and two queens of France (Catherine and Maria de' Medici).
Prince Lorenzo de Medici lived in various American and Russian cities where he developed an international vision of existence brought to a practical sense, to relationships, to culture. 

He is a knight of the Order of Martirano. His maxim is to make nobility a service to the weak, the defenseless and the less fortunate.
