Since Ursula got it right, Andrea, you may make yourself alive and enlighten us on why they´re called Poliziani.

Ok, Andrea, I'll answer, but then I definitely want the prize, ok?

The most famous inhabitant of M. was a certain man who studied humanistics. His name was "Poliziano". He was the private teacher of the Medici family.
He has taken over this name from a former designation of the town's name itself.

Hm... did I get this about right? It's not my "English writing day".
