The Pazzi are now most famous for involvement in the "Pazzi conspiracy" to assassinate Lorenzo de' Medici, that came to a head April 26, 1478.
As a reward, Sixtus granted the Pazzi a monopoly at the alum mines at Tolfa— alum being an essential mordant in dyeing in the textile trade that was central to the Florentine economy— and he assigned to the Pazzi bank lucrative rights to manage papal revenues.
After the conspiracy, the Pazzi were rehabilitated and returned to Florence, producing one saint, the ecstatic Carmelite nun Saint Maria Magdalena de' Pazzi (1566-1607).
