Amadeus Cianfanelli was a famous dwarf and the predecessor of such bankers as Giacomo, Nino and Cosma. He was not founder of the house, but during his life the surname rise to prominence. By the age of fifty he had already established a bank. It soon became clear, that for the ambitious Amadeus, this was just the start. He quickly expanded the business, establishing Cianfanelli Bank branches in Kovir and Nazair and sending a representative to Zerrikania. He became known for treating each and every customer as an old friend and cared deeply about what became of others' coin. He thus created a range of banking products to better allow him to look after the property of an increasingly greater number of customers. He coined the phrase that became family motto: "We look after your coin as if it were our own."
