Blazon:

Arms:  Argent, issuant from a base wavy Gules a demi wild man, habited and wreathed about the head, holding in the dexter hand a branch of four twigs each leaved and fructed of one apple and in the sinister hand a sprig of three roses slipped and leaved Proper.

Crest:  A demi Pulcinella Proper holding in the dexter hand a hunting horn Or and in the sinister hand a bezant.

Mantling  Gules doubled Argent.

Motto:  PRATICA LA RESURREZIONE

Design Rationale:

The Pulcinella on the crest represents the armigers Neopolitan heritage, the bezant his Cornish heritage. The horn he is holding represents the armigers commission as a Kentucky Colonel. The shield shows a wild man or more specifically Silvanus (Roman god of the countryside) which is canting for the last name Silvestri (Latin: from the woods). The armiger is an orchardist and gardener, hence apples and roses. The four apples represent his four sons and the three roses his daughters. The red wavy base is intentionally left blank so that his children may add a charge for difference.
